Michael Shannon (Broadwalk Empire) stars as a man plagued by apocalyptic visions in the psychological thriller. As he tries to work out if the world is about to end or if he's going crazy his family begin to fear for their safety.
"Contemporary anxieties about terrorism, disease, climate change and economic collapse as portents of the end of days are brilliantly channelled into Jeff Nichols’ acclaimed psychological thriller. Michael Shannon plays Curtis, a mine supervisor in a small Ohio town, happily married to Samantha (The Tree of Life’s Jessica Chastain) and father to a deaf six-year-old daughter. From the startling moment when we first encounter him it’s clear that he is driven by terrible visions of a coming storm and is fearing for his sanity."(Source: NZ International Film Festival 2011)
