Wow!
14 November 2016 | by (Baton Rouge, La) – See all my reviews

"Shelter" is remarkable piece of work that stared two great actors that performed brilliantly. I like Anthony Mackie and I love Jennifer Connelly. Both of them were great in this film. This is a heart breaking story of two homeless people that cross paths and fall in love and try to survive homeless in the streets. Their lives and their stories of how they got there are brought out dramatically in this film. This film does start out a little slow but then it picks up and goes on a dramatically intense journey. The way the plot unfolds in this film is simple but in a good story like this that's all that's needed. I learned that this is Paul Bettany's directorial debut. If this is, all I can say is wow! This film is set up perfectly and the writing is great. I wanted to see this film from the time I saw the trailer because I knew with Anthony Mackie and Jennifer Connelly that this film was going to be a good one. This film is a must see and I think anyone who loves drama and good chemistry between two wonderful actors should see this film.
