LONDON – The Works U.K. Distribution has corralled all U.K. distribution rights to Jeff Nichols’ Take Shelter.
The movie is set to have its British premiere later this week during the BFI London Film Festival.
Nichols directs Michael Shannon and rising star Jessica Chastain and details the story of young couple which sees the man become haunted by having terrifying dreams about an encroaching, apocalyptic storm.
The movie unspooled at this year’s Sundance Film Festival where it was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize.
The film went on to win the Cannes 2011 Critics Week Grand Prize and FIPRESCI Award and was most recently awarded the Grand Prize at the Deauville Film Festival and Best Film at the Zurich Film Festival.
