Take ShelterTake Shelter is a 2011 American drama film starring Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain. The film is written and directed by Jeff Nichols.

In a small town in Ohio, Curtis LaForche (Michael Shannon) has apocalyptic dreams, but he keeps them from his wife Samantha (Jessica Chastain) and their daughter Hannah (Tova Stewart).
