A storm’s a’coming in the trailer for “Take Shelter”
Posted on June 8, 2011
Now here’s an interesting trailer for Jeff Nichols’ second feature Take Shelter, which won both the Critics Week Grand Prize and the SACD Award at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. I really enjoyed Nichols low key debut, Shotgun Stories, which also starred Michael Shannon (who’s playing a villain in the upcoming Superman reboot Man of Steel), and Take Shelter seems to build on their previous collaboration. The small town drama, the family man losing it and the storm all remind me of the Coen’s excellent A Serious Man (minus the humor), but otherwise this seems to be a completeley different film.
Watch the trailer for Take Shelter and then think about cleaning up your storm shelter:
