Take Shelter (2011)

Directed by: Jeff Nichols
Country: USA

Plot: Plagued by a series of apocalyptic visions, a young husband and father questions whether to shelter his family from a coming storm, or from himself.
Quick comment: I usually don’t like this kind of movies (about catastrophes) but this one has something more. It takes good advantage of psychological factor and can deliver real panic and stressful situations. The cold and determined character played by Michael Shannon is excellent and enough to keep us startled till the final revelation.
Relevant Awards: Critics Week Grand Prize and SACD Award for best feature(Cannes, France); Special Jury Award (Gijon , Spain).
