When her single mom runs off to California, 13-year-old Laudurée, a passionate environmentalist, clings to her rural home and a carbon sequestration experiment. But her grandmother Greta, a caustic nurse, has other plans. Thrust together, the two women must learn to trust each other in the face of an uncertain future. Featuring outstanding performances by two wonderful former MIFF special guests, Amy Madigan (Field of Dreams, Gone Baby Gone) and Midlife Achievement Award winner Lili Taylor (Say Anything, Six Feet Under), as well as a truly great one by 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. And this entertaining drama is also a way to think about environmental issues in a way that hasn’t been done before! Unrated. 100 Min.
