Something For The Weekend: The Weather Man

The Weather Man

Nicolas Cage plays a weatherman whose family is falling apart. He has divorced his wife, his child is obese and being bullied and his son’s drug councillor’s behaviour seems highly dubious. He also has a difficult relationship with his father, who is dying of cancer.

Everyone is miserable and it is up to Cage’s character to sort it out, sort of.

This is a nice story about someone trying to do right by his family, whilst trying to sort his own mind out.

There are some good performances here and a nicely written script.
