November Film Club

Hey everybody.  As October comes to a close (which, really doesn't seem possible) so does our Horror Fest presentation of "The Films of Alfred Hitchcock".  Thank you to everyone who was able to make it to any or all of the films, we really appreciate your patronage.
The film I've selected for November is something completely different that I think you'll enjoy.

We will be watching Jeff Nichols': Take Shelter

Take Shelter is a 2011 American drama-thriller film written and directed by Jeff Nichols and starring Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain.  Plagued by a series of apocalyptic visions, a young husband and father (Shannon) questions whether to shelter his family from a coming storm, or from himself.

In Lagrange, Ohio, Curtis LaForche (Michael Shannon) has apocalyptic dreams of being harmed by people close to him, but he keeps them from his wife Samantha (Jessica Chastain) and their deaf daughter Hannah (Tova Stewart).  He focuses on building a storm shelter in his backyard, but the strange behavior strains his relationship with his family.  Curtis goes to see a counselor at a free clinic, with whom he talks about his family's psychological history.  His mother (Kathy Baker) suffers from paranoid schizophrenia, which presented about the same age that Curtis is now.

Film club will meet Thursday, Nov. 15th at 6:15pm.  Hope to see you there!
