Insightful and thought provoking, TAKE SHELTER is a drama about a man trying to protect his family while facing an obsessive fear of doom. Driven nearly insane by visions of the apocalypse, he struggles to keep his world together while becoming more and more convinced that it’s about to end.
Written and directed by JEFF NICHOLS, the cast includes MICHAEL SHANNON, JESSICA CHASTAIN, TOVA STEWART, SHEA WHIGHAM and KATY MIXON.
A crowd favorite at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, TAKE SHELTER has been singled out for its outstanding direction and performances.
In Toronto recently to promote the film, MICHAEL SHANNON talked about his appreciation for his character’s tenacity in protecting his family. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
