The third screener to go out this season following Chris Weitz’s A Better Life and Jim Kohlberg’s The Music Never Stopped is Jeff Nichols’ Take Shelter. Obviously it will pushed in all categories upon close glance but the real question is will a early campaign help in the efforts of Academy Award Nominee Michael Shannon and Oscar hopeful Jessica Chastain, who has five other films out this season. The film is sitting at a very pretty 94% on Rotten Tomatoes and 85% on Metacritic. Unrelated to the Oscar race but important enough here at the Awards Circuit, the film is/was in consideration for this season of Academy Idol. Did it make the cut? You’ll find out on November 13th. Does Shannon, Chastain, and the film have a chance with Oscar? Comment and discuss.
