Sundance 2011: Pictures From TAKE SHELTER

Here’s our first look at a new film premiering at The Sundance Film Festival called Take Shelter.

The films is directed by Jeff Nichols and boasts a great cast that includes Michael Shannon (Boardwalk Empire) and Jessica Chastain (The Tree of Life, The Wettest County in the World)The movie also features Shea Whigham (Boardwalk Empire), Katy Mixon (Eastbound & Down), and Kathy Baker.

This movie has a very interesting concept about a father who questions whether his terrifying dreams of an apocalyptic storm signal something real to come or the onset of an inherited mental illness he’s feared his whole life. 
Official Synopsis:
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.
