Take Shelter trailer

TakeShelter.jpgI hadn't heard much about Take Shelter until this morning, and the good news is that the trailer is really intriguing and Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain star in the film that's written and directed by Jeff Nichols.

I'm really curious as to where the story is going to go, but it does provide another powerful psychological role for Shannon to revel in, as he so often does.

The story for Take Shelter goes like this:

Curtis lives in Ohio with his wife Samantha and daughter Hannah. When he begins having terrifying dreams about an encroaching apocalyptic storm, he chooses to keep the disturbance to himself, channelling his anxiety into the obsessive building of a storm shelter in their backyard. His seemingly inexplicable behaviour concerns and confounds Samantha, and provokes intolerance among co-workers, friends and neighbours. But the resulting strain on his marriage and tension within the community doesn't compare to Curtis' private fear of what his dreams may truly signify. Faced with the proposition that his disturbing visions signal disaster of one kind or another, Curtis confides in Samantha, testing the power of their bond against the highest possible stakes.

Now here's the trailer:

Looks good doesn't it? Are you as curious as I am as to how the story turns out and how the character develops?
