Well i should have seen that coming..

Based on the novel THE SCENT OF RAIN & LIGHTNING by Nancy Pickard. When a young woman learns her parents' killer has been released from jail, she is forced to revisit old wounds while discovering the destructive power of hate and the true cost of family secrets fully revealing themselves. With a good and well known Cast of people like Maggie Grace, Justin Chadwick, Mark Webber and Maika Monroe 'The Scent of Rain and Lightning' fails to capture the dramatic elements that it needs and the end result is an over dramatic and slow paced drama/wester that doesn't work both in terms of plot wise and acting wise plus some good actors get wasted in terrible roles like Grace and Monroe. (0/10)

Great movie, if you actually take the time

This is a film for those audiences that actually take the time and have the patience to experience it, knowing that they will be rewarded. For those that don't, or want everything spoon-fed to them (like another review here), it will be confusing and unrewarding. I've seen it twice as of this writing (Oct 2017), and it was even better the second time around. Everything is spot on, the direction, cinematography, writing, sound, everything. Every role is superbly acted, especially by Maika Monore, Maggie Grace, and Mark Webber. I'm sure it's hard to adapt a novel covering 25 years with many characters' detailed lives into a 100 minute movie, and director Blake Robbins has done an awesome job. (Also, check out his first film "The Sublime and Beautiful".)

surprising adaptation

Scent of Rain and Lightning (an adaptation of the novel by Nancy Pickard) upends expectations at every twisted turn. Anchored by a strong script from RUDDERLESS writers Casey Twenter and Jeff Robison, the film refuses to comply with the usual genre rules. Styled as a Western, flirting at the edges of a who-don-it, the film ultimately questions if we can truly know the truths of our personal histories...let alone understand them. Director Blake Robbins's extreme close-ups create a feeling of confusion and claustrophobia while a stellar cast hints at unseen histories. Watch for Maggie Grace's enigmatic portrayal of the headstrong, paradoxical Laurie.
