The Weather Man Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

A man struggles to get a grip on a life that's spinning out of control in this emotional comedy drama. Dave Spritz ([[Performer~P10155~Nicolas Cage~nicolascage]]) is a television weatherman on a high-profile Chicago news program. Professionally, Dave is doing just fine -- he makes great money for a job that demands little effort, and he has a shot at an assignment with a network morning news and chat show. But Dave's personal life leaves a lot to be desired -- his father, respected author Robert Spritzel ([[Performer~P10198~Michael Caine~michaelcaine]]), is in failing health, he's divorced from his wife, Noreen ([[Performer~P17353~Hope Davis~hopedavis]]), and his relationship with his children is tenuous at best, especially his overweight daughter, Shelly ([[Performer~P276995~Gemmenne de la Pena~gemmennedelapena]]). If Dave is to land his new job, he'll have to move to New York City, and with his time in Chicago running short, he dedicates himself to trying to salvage his ties with his family before it's too late, though he discovers this is even harder than he imagines. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
