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.

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.

Deller's pacing remains uneven, taking too long to build to a too-rapid finale, but that at least gives her opportunity to focus on the film's main asset, devoting ample time to observing its tetchy, sharply drawn lead.

Centered around a quietly spectacular performance by young Perla Haney-Jardine, Future Weather integrates a green message into a striking and emotional drama about intergenerational female conflict.
