The Weather Man (2006)

Gore Verbinski directs Nicolas Cage, Michael Caine and Nicolas Hoult in this drama where a successful TV weather presenter notes his private life has hit rock bottom.

A filthy rich, often dour respin of American Beauty. Nice to see Cage and Verbinski doing good work in a subdued mode. Doesn’t reach any grand conclusions but might be better for that?
