Sony Pictures Home Entertainment released Take Shelter to Blu-ray on February 14, 2012. Jeff Nichols directed the film starring Michael Shannon, Jessica Chastain, and Shea Whigham.

‘Take Shelter’ Movie Synopsis

In Take Shelter, a series of apocalyptic visions plagues Curtis LaForche who lives in small Ohio town with his wife, Samantha, and six-year-old daughter Hannah. Curtis makes a modest living as a crew chief for a sand-mining company. Samantha is a stay-at-home mother and part-time seamstress who supplements their income selling handmade wares at the flea market each weekend. Money is tight, and navigating Hannah’s healthcare and special needs education is a constant struggle. Despite that, Curtis and Samantha are very much in love and their family is a happy one.

At first, Curtis keeps his visions to himself; channeling his anxiety into the obsessive building of a storm shelter in their backyard. Soon, his inexplicable behavior concerns Samantha, and provokes intolerance among co-workers, friends, and neighbors. However, the strain on his marriage and tension within the community doesn’t compare to Curtis’ inner fear of what his dreams might 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.
