This has all of the right ingredients for a coming of age drama and reminded me why I love independent film so much, namely because it's synonymous with quiet, human moments and authentic acting performances. Achingly real family tension and pain (which is wonderfully scripted and directed) is softened by genuine moments of humor and warmth from an electric cast. Pair all of that with a memorable, plucky score and beautiful cinematography and you've got "Drought."
It's 1993 and North Carolina is experiencing a historic drought. Autistic teen Carl, fascinated by weather, predicts that a storm will soon hit nearby. His sister Sam crafts a plan to help him chase the storm, stealing their mother's ice-cream truck to embark on a road trip about family, forgiveness, and following your dreams.
