'Take Shelter'


Thanks to such movies as "The Help," "The Tree of Life" and "The Debt," actress Jessica Chastain seems to have been everywhere lately.

She's also showcased by this Cannes Film Festival-honored drama about a family unsettled by the behavior of the husband and father (Michael Shannon, "Revolutionary Road"), whose dreams drive him to construct a storm shelter in the backyard. Kathy Baker and Shea Whigham ("Boardwalk Empire") also appear. DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; audio commentary by Shannon and writer-director Jeff Nichols; deleted scenes; interview with Shannon and Whigham. *** (R: P) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
