Lauduree (Haney-Jardine) is a 13-year-old loner passionate about nature and worried about global warming. Greta (Amy Madigan), her grandmother, is a fiery nurse jaded by alcohol and disappointment. When Lauduree is abruptly abandoned by her dreamer single mom (Marin Ireland), she decides to take survival into her own hands, forcing her and Greta to rethink their futures. Featuring outstanding performances by Amy Madigan (Field of Dreams, Gone Baby Gone), Lili Taylor (Say Anything, Six Feet Under), William Sadler (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile), Marin Ireland (Revolutionary Road, Rachel Getting Married) and newcomer Perla Haney-Jardine (Kill Bill Vol. 2, Spider-Man 3), Future Weather is a coming-of-age drama about saying goodbye to what we love and leaping into the unknown.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
[A] tiny, beautifully acted movie ...Stephen Holden, New York Times, 02.28.2013
Centered around a quietly spectacular performance by young Perla Haney-Jardine, Future Weather integrates a green message into a striking and emotional drama about intergenerational female conflict.John Anderson, Variety, 02.19.2013
Deller's pacing remains uneven, taking too long to build to a too-rapid finale, but that at least gives her opportunity to focus on the film's main asset, devoting ample time to observing its tetchy, sharply drawn lead.Andrew Schenker, Village Voice, 02.27.2013
Ever wonder what you're missing by not attending the Sundance Film Festival? Many of the entries look a lot like this little indie, a nicely observed but overly familiar coming-of-age tale.Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, 02.28.2013
