More Detail:

Set in New Zealand in the 1930s, steeped in Christianity, calling for compassion, and incensed by hypocrisy, THE END OF THE GOLDEN WEATHER is a lyrical, yet profound coming-of-age film about a twelve-year-old boy, Geoffrey Crome, who desires to be a famous writer. The world seems miraculous from his imaginative perspective, and Geoff takes everything to heart, believing in the power of prayer and the fact that “Jesus came to life, again.” Geoff becomes friends with Firpo–a skinny, deranged, Holy Fool-with an ambition to win the Olympic Games. Despite his father’s warnings, Geoff tries to help Firpo win a race against the local youth who enjoy making fun of Firpo. Geoff so much wants to believe in Firpo’s miracle that he sets himself against his family, his community and the innocent dreams of his childhood. In the end, Geoff and his family become wiser–united by bonds of compassion.

THE END OF THE GOLDEN WEATHER calls us to have compassion on those less fortunate than ourselves while making us think about the price of doing so. Geoff discovers that Firpo is not a friendly fool, yet he finds dignity in helping Firpo. This is not an easy film with a simple conclusion. It assumes a Christian worldview, yet challenges hypocrisy. The filmmaking is so real, yet so unique that THE END OF THE GOLDEN WEATHER will haunt you long after you see it.
