Competition: Win Jeff Nichols’ ‘Take Shelter’ on Blu-ray *closed*

To celebrate the release of Jeff Nichols’ superb indie drama Take Shelter (2011)starring Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain – on DVD and Blu-ray on 19 March, Universal Pictures will kindly be giving away THREE Blu-ray copies of the film to CineVue’s readers. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook fans, so if you haven’t already, head over to, ‘Like’ us, and then follow the instructions below.

Take Shelter tells the story of Curtis LaForche (Michael Shannon) who lives in a small Ohio town with his wife Samantha (Jessica Chastain) and six-year-old deaf daughter Hannah (Tova Stewart). When Curtis begins having terrifying dreams about an encroaching, apocalyptic storm, he decides not to tell his wife, but instead channels his anxiety and money into the building of a storm shelter in their backyard.

Curtis’ uncharacteristic behaviour concerns and baffles Samantha, and provokes suspicion and intolerance amongst his colleagues, neighbours and friends, placing a strain on his marriage and creating tension within their community. Fearful that he is beginning to follow a past family member down the road to mental illness, Curtis struggles to keep his grasp on what is real and what is not.
