Jessica Chastain at Premiere of Her Sundance Hit "Take Shelter" in NYC Last Night

My husband and I were invited to attend the premiere of “Take Shelter” last night in NYC, by our friend, producer Tyler Davidson (produced under his Strange Matter Films banner).  In attendance were the films stars, Jessica Chastain (center), Oscar nominee Michael Shannon (left) and director Jeff Nichols (right).  After an intro by the President of Sony Pictures and a quick chat with the stars, we viewed the movie and went to an intimate after party at The Vault downtown.  Read more about the film here.

The thriller wowed critics at Sundance and Cannes and opens in NYC and LA on September 30.  You may recognize Jessica Chastain from her stellar performance in “The Help” and “Tree of Life” — it’s been  a big year for the actress! She delivers an emotional performance as the supportive wife of a man suffering through disturbing premonitions and visions.  Together Chastain and Shannon take us through his emotional regression and the impact it has on their family and marriage.  The movie is about family, love and faith.

Take a minute to view the trailer and be sure to see the movie 9/30!
