Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Smart casting redeems the film."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"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."
‑ Mike D'Angelo, AV Club
"A top-notch drama about a 13 year old who is a lover of science and a passionate activist determined to save the planet."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Neither a disposable piece of formula nor an engrossing tale that makes the most of its standard parts."
‑ Matt Pais, RedEye
"[A] tiny, beautifully acted movie ..."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"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."
‑ Andrew Schenker, Village Voice
"The film is ultimately enjoyable despite its faults, at least partially because it represents an earnest, honest attempt to empathize with struggling American working-class women."
‑ Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine
"Haney-Jardine presents a sensitive portrait of a conflicted teenager who's been forced to become self-sufficient before she's really ready..."
‑ Sarah Boslaugh, PopMatters
"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."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"When a movie shows a couple of bright kids excited about a mussel, it's hard to say no."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Feels like the product of an explosion at the Sundance factory: a rural setting here, a wisp of mildly quirky indie rock there."
‑ Sam Adams, Time Out Chicago
