Take Shelter

Curtis LaForche (Michael Shannon) has been having visions about an upcoming environmental apocalypse. He takes out a loan so he can build a shelter to protect his family, but financially, it leaves them at a loss. He's no longer able to afford to get his deaf daughter the surgery she needs to restore her hearing.

He also begins to question his sanity. His mother was a victim of schizophrenia, and he worries that the same thing is happening to him. He begins to wonder whether he needs to protect his family from a coming storm, or from himself.
