This movie has, as everyone had already said, an outstanding acting performance from Meryl Streep.
She is certain to be nominated and may even win but do not mistake this movie for a bio of Margaret Thatcher's political and global impact. This movie is about the effects of dementia on even the sharpest of minds.
You may even see this as a love story (as my wife did) between Margaret and her late husband dennis.
If you choose to go and are not familiar with the true events behind the movie I would recommend reading her wikipedia page beforehand.
There are movie the critics describe as "masterful movie making" and most other people describe as
"two hours of my life I won't get back." Well Take Shelter is exactly 120 minutes and you won't be seeing any of them again if you make the same mistake I did.
Micheal Shannon is a great actor if this movie is any indication, but that is the movies only positive. The theme is familiar and movie is very realistic, and there in lies its weakness. The movie is too much like every day life to make it worth paying to see.
There is a "twist" at the end which you can discuss with your friends for another 5 or 10 minutes afterwards if you feel so inclined but if you keep any conversation about this movie going for more than 5 minutes I will be very impressed.
