The Weather Man (2005)

Comedy, Drama |

The Weather Man is a American comedy-drama film directed by Gore Verbinski, written by Steve Conrad, and starring Nicolas Cage, Michael Caine and Hope Davis. It tells the story of a weatherman in the midst of a mid-life crisis. The film was released on October 28, 2005, and grossed $19 million worldwide.

A successful weatherman at a Chicago news program, David Spritz (Nicolas Cage) is well paid but garners little respect from people in the area who throw fast food at him, David suspects, because they’re resentful of how easy his high-paying job is. Dave also feels overshadowed by his father, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Robert Spritzel (Michael Caine), who is disappointed in Dave’s apparent inability to grow up and deal with his two children. The situation worsens when Robert is diagnosed with lymphoma and given only a few months to live. As he becomes more and more depressed, Dave takes up archery, finding the activity a way to build his focus and calm his nerves.

David later remembers a conversation between himself and his father, where his father explains to him that “the harder thing to do and the right thing to do are often the same thing” and that “nothing that has meaning is easy”. David appreciates this advice but struggles to implement it.
