2. 'Take Shelter'

Michael Shannon (my new favorite Riveting Actor Who Makes Me Slightly Uncomfortable) stars in this acclaimed indie as a husband and father who believes his nightmares are foreshadowing disaster to come. Jessica Chastain, whom you may know from every movie this year ("The Tree of Life," "The Help," "The Debt," etc.) plays his understandably concerned wife. Out Friday. Sony Pictures Classics
