UNDER THE WEATHER is an uplifting meditation on one man’s graceful surrender to the inevitable and the palpable impact his passing has on those he leaves behind.

There is no ‘best thing’ about having terminal cancer, but for forty-year-old Joe, being welcomed back into his childhood home, feeling the warmth and support of his sister and her husband, and observing his young niece’s blossoming emotional maturity, seem to give new meaning to a life he thought he might have wasted.

“Not in a long time has a movie about dying been so beautiful, funny and honest. I think about big-budget films on the topic with major Hollywood stars like My Sister’s Keeper, A Walk To Remember and Life As A House, the latter being a major go-to for me. MacGillivray captures the intricacies, emotions – and both the pitfalls and the unexpected peaks – of caring for a dying loved one better than any Hollywood film I’ve ever seen.” 5/5 Stars, Parker&Pictures:
