Take Shelter

Take Shelter ★★★★½

I love everything about this movie.

This is Michael Shannon's best role and one that was under-appreciated that year, in my opinion. Not to mention Jessica Chastain, what a perfect companion for this. She's so loving and matronly to their on screen daughter. Her kindness and gentleness in real life shines through to on screen. I really would love for Michael and Jess to work together again. It would make my life. (Throw in Nichols' in the mix and I'd be the biggest happy camper ever)

Coincidentally, this is my favorite Nichols film. The first one I saw from him, and the one that gives me the chills the most. The man is amazing and I'm so happy he's worked with Michael for every film he's done so far.
