“I’m Darcy, Kevin was friends with my son Walker.” “Wasn’t Walker friends with some guy named Mark Wright?” “I never liked that kid. I need you to think back to around the time that Walker died. What might have been going on between those two.” ‘Stranger Weather’ is a poignant, lyrical drama about a mother Darcy (Holly Hunter), who, in an effort to deal with the grief over the death of her son, travels the back roads of the deep south to settle a score. Darcy’s son killed himself seven years ago, but she can’t move on — especially because she suspects her late son’s friend, Mark, stole his business plan. She embarks on a road trip through the deep South to confront Mark, who now runs a lucrative chain of restaurants.
“Even if he stole Walker’s idea you can’t prove it.” “If I can find a copy of Walker’s old business plan I can.” Darcy immediately packs her bag, gets in her truck, picks up her friend Byrd, and sets out for New Orleans to confront Mark and settle the score. “I’m here for moral support but I’m not accompanying you on some mission of violence.”
“I didn’t see Walker as he was, what was I seeing then?” “You saw the parts of him you wanted to see.” “I am Darcy Baylor, and I am Walker Baylor’s mother. I want you to tell me what happened.” Directed and written by Katherine Dieckmann ‘Strange Weather’ is a story of grief and forgiveness, of looking inward to find a way to move forward. Starring Academy Award winner Holly Hunter, Carrie Coon, Kim Coates, Glenne Headly and Ransom Ashley the drama, which premiered at Toronto International Film Festival last fall, opens in theaters and on VOD on July 28, 2017.
