Christopher Webster [Celluloid 01.21.11] movie apocalyptic news drama

Director Jeff Nichols made one of our favourite films of the last couple years with Shotgun Stories (trailer) about a deadly family feud. Well he's back with the apocalyptic Take Shelter which looks to be another winner - and was picked up by Sony before even premiering at Sundance 2011.

Curtis LaForche lives in a small town in Ohio with his wife, Samantha, and daughter, Hannah, a six-year-old deaf girl. When Curtis begins to have terrifying dreams, he keeps the visions to himself, channeling his anxiety into obsessively building a storm shelter in his backyard. His seemingly inexplicable behavior concerns and confounds those closest to him, but the resulting strain on his marriage and tension within his community can't compare with Curtis's privately held fear of what his dreams may truly signify.

Take Shelter features fully realized characters crumbling under the weight of real-life problems. Using tone and atmosphere to chilling effect, Nichols crafts a powerful psychological thriller that is a disturbing tale for our times.

The film stars the great Michael Shannon.

No trailer yet, but there are some stills after the break.
