There's almost nothing to criticize. Yet the overall effect is one big shoulder shrug, because there's nothing in Future Weather that can't be found in dozens of other indie movies just like it.

Ever wonder what you're missing by not attending the Sundance Film Festival? Many of the entries look a lot like this little indie, a nicely observed but overly familiar coming-of-age tale.
