Set in New Mexico, present day. The first problem I had with this film is the premise that suddenly, it stopped raining. No more rain. Anywhere. Ever. The film ignores the science of that premise and hints that it's all mankind's fault. Somehow.
Then, the dialogue. No one talks to anyone. They keep secrets, even family members don't tell each other the whole story. Deputies don't talk to the sheriff. The writers apparently needed to drag this out, so they didn't want the characters to reveal too much. It's OK to a degree, but when NO ONE is telling anyone anything, it's simply frustrating for the viewer.
This movie involves psychic abilities in a family that hides it because the mean ol' government will come after them and study them. The protagonist, a recovering addict, carries a gun to prevent the government from taking her away to be studied, and so, with all the foresight of an addict, she heads home. They'll never think to look for her there.
The movie starts fast, moves well for about 15 minutes, then bogs down into family members looking at each other and avoiding telling each other the truth about anything. Boring. At the climatic end, the big reveal, it starts to rain. Why? Well, it's apparently a well-known scientific fact that humans can control the weather just by thinking about it. So why all the angst about "no rain"?
I always watch the entire movie when I want to write a review. I did watch this one all the way to its soggy ending. Very displeased that I had to do so, but the truth is, the movie was incredibly weak on plot and premise.
