Meet David Spritz, Chicago’s local weatherman for WCH, Channel 6. For many, he’s more than just someone who forecasts sun, rain, sleet or snow – he’s a moving target. Pelted on a regular basis with soda pop, malts and fast food by jealous fans, many of whom have a curious love-hate relationship with him, David wants nothing more than respect…especially from his father, prize-winning author Robert Spritzel.

THE WEATHER MANA LOVE-HATE RELATIONSHIP WITH
THE WEATHER MAN

From its beginning to its end, The Weatherman is about the storms of life. It is about the atmosphere that surrounds us and the things that blow us off course.

SYNOPSIS
enlargeAcademy Award winner Nicolas Cage stars as popular Chicago TV weatherman David Spritz, who has a shot at the big time when “Hello America,” a national morning show, calls him for an audition. At the top of the world professionally, David is approaching disaster on a personal level as rapidly as the weather changes. His painful divorce, his dad’s illness, and trouble with his kids have David poised on the knife’s edge between stability and calamity. Trying to gain control of his situation, David slowly comes to realize that life, much like the weather, is completely unpredictable.

Meet David Spritz (Nicolas Cage), Chicago’s local weatherman for WCH, Channel 6. For many, he’s more than just someone who forecasts sun, rain, sleet or snow – he’s a moving target. Pelted on a regular basis with soda pop, malts and fast food by jealous fans, many of whom have a curious love-hate relationship with him, David wants nothing more than respect…especially from his father, prize-winning author Robert Spritzel (Michael Caine). He also wants his estranged wife Noreen (Hope Davis) to love him again, his daughter (Gemmenne De la Peña, “Erin Brockovich”) to be happy, and son (Nicholas Hoult, “About a Boy”) to stay out of trouble. On top of that, David wouldn’t mind mastering archery.

But although David’s life is full of inner turmoil, on the outside the weatherman with the winning smile and onscreen charm appears to be pretty much under control. Even the producers of the prestigious New York-based “Hello America,” hosted by Bryant Gumbel (portraying himself), have noticed his work and want him to audition for their syndicated national morning show. Still, no amazing career opportunity seems to be stopping David’s personal life from going into a skid, and much like the tornadoes he predicts, he could be headed for a path of destruction.
