CGiii Comment

Holly Hunter plays Holly Hunter...as a tough-nut, non-conforming, grieving mother...and, to a certain degree, she pulls it off.

Now, there is actually a built-in ending that would have made this film fly into the stratosphere...instead, and [in our humble opinion] erroneously, Katherine Dieckmann chose to go down the safer route...what could have been a mighty statement on the individuality of grief and the grieving process...became a rather diluted affair.

Oooooh the potential to have a collective jaw-drop was there...if only...!

Strange Weather is a poignant drama about a mother, played by Academy Award-winner Holly Hunter, who travels the back roads of the Deep South to settle a score. The film co-stars Carrie Coon (Gone Girl, The Leftovers) and is a story of grief, forgiveness, and looking inward to find a way to move forward.
