Take Shelter

01 Jul

take shelterPlagued by a series of apocalyptic visions, a young husband and father questions whether to shelter his family from a coming storm, or from himself. (IMDb)

This was a really fascinating movie. It is led by extremely strong performances from Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain. Shannon is fantastic. He plays this guy who is walking the line between wanting to believe his visions and wanting to be realistic. I don’t want to say anymore because I don’t want to give anything away. Chastain gives an equally powerful performance. She plays a wife that is both patient and caring, but also headstrong and strongwilled. I absolutely loved this character and her portrayal of it. While the pace of the movie overall is a bit slow, I was still interested in what was going on throughout. Like I said, I don’t want to give anything away, but the last 15 minutes of this are worth the entire 2 hours.
