Strange Weather

with filmmaker Katherine Dieckmann in person

director:
Katherine Dieckmann
cast:
Holly Hunter, Carrie Coon

Playing to her abundant strengths as a Southern woman of grit and complexity, Holly Hunter offers a ferocious performance as Darcy Butler. Still reeling from the loss of her son seven years earlier, a suddenly jobless Darcy hits the road with best friend Byrd with the notion of seeking retribution from her son’s duplicitous business partner. “It’s the type of rich, nuanced, regional American indie that flourished in the 1990s… It’s a road-trip movie, so that means stopping in Mississippi to see old friends, and even settle some scores. The scene work—almost all women—is strong, with characters that feel lived-in and typically underrepresented on screen.” (Guardian) “Steeped in a strong sense of place and peopled by convention-defying characters, Katherine Dieckmann’s Strange Weather draws you into its sultry Southern milieu and takes you on a back-roads trek you won’t soon forget.” (Toronto International Film Festival)
