It’s a pretty amazing two years for Kimberly Steward. At this time in 2015 Steward was on the set of Kenneth Lonergan‘s “Manchester by the Sea” as the production battled blizzards and snow to get finished on time.  12 months ago Steward just returned from Sundance where “Manchester” wowed crowds and was acquired for a pretty penny by Amazon Studios.
