The hotly-anticipated new comedy guaranteed to brighten your day, 'The Weather Man' also stars Hope Davis ('About Schmidt', 'The Matador') and Nicholas Hoult ('About A Boy'), and tells the story of a Chicago forecaster who has a curious love-hate relationship with his audience, as well as his family.   Demonstrating to perfection Cage’s versatility as an actor, 'The Weather Man' also features shining performances from all cast members and, coupled with deft direction and a stunning visual style, a bright forecast is on the cards for this gem of a movie.

The Weather Man


Meet Dave Spritz, Chicago’s most popular weatherman and minor celebrity.  Professionally he’s on top of the world but his personal life is in disarray.  Failing father of two and frustrated son of a famous writer, Spritz is poised on a knife edge between stability and disaster.  Faced with the chance of hitting the big time in New York he embarks on a soul-searching  mission to reunite his family, but the more he tries to take control, the more he finds that life, like the weather, is completely unpredictable.
