Take Shelter (Jeff Nichols, 2011)

I meant to watch this with Beth before she left for North Carolina, but the time got away from us.

We actually meant to watch it in the theater, but I guess 2011 got away from us.

I finally saw half of it Saturday night and finished it this evening.  Then I watched it again with commentary from writer-director Jeff Nichols and actor Michael Shannon.
"There is a storm coming . . ."


" . . . like NOTHING you have ever seen."

"And not a one of you is prepared for it."

The whole cast is outstanding, but Shannon is off-the-fuckin'-hook.
Powerful, disturbing, and challenging.
