Immensely Powerful - Review of Take Shelter
I had absolutely no idea what to expect when I began watching Take Shelter (2011), so I was really in for a big surprise; and a pleasant one for that matter.

Take Shelter caught my interest from the very beginning. It however still took a little more time before I got completely captivated by it, but when this happened I was very much engrossed in the movie. I ended getting far more moved and stunned by it than I in any way had expected or even hoped for. During several scenes, the movie was so immensely powerful that I very simply was breathless. Just thinking back at these scenes now, gives me goosebumps.

The aspect of Take Shelter which I think deserves most of the credit for making the movie so very powerful is the absolutely amazing acting by Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain. I'm at a complete loss for words attempting to describe how great they both were. They gave the movie the power which very few movies get even close to.

A truly exceptional movie.
