Take Shelter Takes Cannes Top Prize

On Thursday, the psychological thriller Take Shelter, starring Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain, won the Grand Prize in the Critics Week competition. Shelter was the only American film in the competition, and is about a man attempting to protect his family from an impending natural disaster, which sounds sort of like The Happening, only apparently good.
