Take Shelter


“Take Shelter” is a tense and absorbing drama (with a touch of the supernatural) starring Michael Shannon (Oscar nomination: “Revolutionary Road”) in an award-winning performance as Curtis LaForche…a family man struggling with violent dreams and hallucinations which cause him to behave in an irrational manner.

Is he foreseeing the future…or suffering from the initial stages of mental illness?

Jessica Chastain (“The Help”) turns-in an excellent performance as Curtis’ wife Samantha.

A thought provoking final scene that is open to interpretation.
May be too slow, too long, and a bit confusing for some movie goers.

Rated R
2 hr.
