The Take Shelter Trailer has premiered. Jeff Nichols‘ Take Shelter (2011) movie stars Michael Shannon, Jessica Chastain, Shea Whigham, Kathy Baker, and Ray McKinnon. Take Shelter‘s plot synopsis: “Curtis LaForche [Michael Shannon] lives in a small Ohio town with his wife Samantha [Jessica Chastain] and six-year-old daughter Hannah, who is deaf. Curtis makes a modest living as a crew chief for a sand-mining company. Samantha is a stay-at-home mother and part-time seamstress who supplements their income by selling handmade wares at the flea market each weekend. Money is tight, and navigating Hannah’s healthcare and special needs education is a constant struggle. Despite that, Curtis and Samantha are very much in love and their family is a happy one. Then Curtis begins having terrifying dreams about an encroaching, apocalyptic storm. He chooses to keep the disturbance to himself, channeling his anxiety into the obsessive building of a storm shelter in their backyard….”
This movie trailer will have the viewer from the beginning. I can’t believe Curtis never gets himself checked out with his family history in mind. I read part of A Beautiful Mind (I’ll finish it) and John Nash talks about in the book how his delusions were as real to him as things in actual existence. That is exactly what Curtis is experiencing. Its too bad that the producers of this film trailer give that all away but it makes trailer highly entertaining. The best part is that Curtis is portrayed as an ordinary, good person who has no defense against what is happening to his mind.
Take Shelter also stars Katy Mixon, Lisa Gay Hamilton, Robert Longstreet, Guy Van Swearingen, Bart Flynn, Tova Stewart, Joe Zamora, and Jeffrey Grover.
