Competition: Win TAKE SHELTER 'Umbrellas'


"Plagued by a series of apocalyptic visions, a young husband and father questions whether to shelter his family from a coming storm, or from himself."

This Friday November 25th will see the release of the apocalyptic drama TAKE SHELTER in the UK&Ireland.Directed by Jeff Nichols (Shotgun Stories) and starring Oscar nominated Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road, Boardwalk Empire) and rising star Jessica Chastain (Tree of Life, The Debt, The Help), TAKE SHELTER was a hit at this year’s Sundance Film Festival where it was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize. The film went on to win the Cannes 2011 Critics Week Grand Prize, the FIPRESCI Award and most recently the Grand Prize at Deauville.


Curtis and Samantha are very much in love and their family is a happy one. Then Curtis begins having terrifying dreams about an encroaching, apocalyptic storm. He chooses to keep the disturbance to himself, channeling his anxiety into the obsessive building of a storm shelter in their backyard. His seemingly inexplicable behavior 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.
