Take Shelter (2011)

Jeff Nichols directs Michael Shannon, Jessica Chastain and Shea Whigham in this drama where an ordinary family man begins receiving visions of an impending disaster, which he takes seriously but also fears might be the start of inherited schizophrenia.

A solid rattler that is expertly acted. Not sure it justifies its entire running time but you have nothing but goodwill towards Nichols’ engagingly simple mode of storytelling.
