My pictures of Jessica Chastain in “Take Shelter” Q&A at 2011 Toronto International Film Festival On Thursday, September 15, 2011 I attended the gala Canadian Premiere of Take Shelter at the Toronto International Film Festival. The sold-out screening took place at the 1250-seat Ryerson Theatre. The film was a US entry in the Special Presentations section.

Mysterious, unseen forces threaten to tear apart a young couple even before their relationship has a chance to blossom. Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain's two-person narrative is emotionally challenging in this seemingly odd story about which little can be said without posting spoilers. Writer/director Jeff Nichols has created the one film on my list most worthy of the word "important." Star Jessica Chastain and producer Tyler Davidson took the stage for a Q&A after the screening.

Here are some pictures I shot during the Q&A:
