Plot: Hannah and Tahir fall in love while homeless on the streets of New York. Shelter explores how they got there, and as we learn about their pasts we realize they need each other to build a future. Runtime: 105 mins Release Date: 13 Nov 2015
SHELTER is a masterpiece of realism, love and forgiveness that will come into its own as it ages. The two lovers, Hanna and Tahir, are bound together by loss and tragedy as they struggle to rise above themselves and their wounds in an uncaring world.Played on at his weakest moment, illegal immigrant Tahir Anthony Mackie falls into bottomless guilt for once being a member of the radical Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram in Nigeria. With painful obsession he prays for redemption for his participation in burning down schools, hospitals and for the unspeakable, brutal murders of thousands of <more>
innocent people including women and children.Jennifer Connelly Hannah makes her acting comeback with a splash as she navigates her own depression and suicidal attempt while grieving the death of her surgeon husband whose plane was shot down at the hands of a similar terrorist group. It becomes evident that Hannah must forgive Tahir and his evil past in order to escape the NYC streets.Hannah is redeemed by her luminous, loving humanity and indestructible bravado, but she has earned it by surviving on the streets. Unfortunately the anguished Tahir is forced to finally accept that he is damaged beyond his ability to redeem his violent past when he once again resorts to his most primitive expression of mindless violence and in the end decides the only way for him to find ultimate redemption is to be reunited with his maker and the pure innocence of his young murdered son at the hands of Nigerian terrorists .SHELTER concerns itself with what's happening in our world today as ISIS invades our own country. Can you forgive the Godless, senseless violence of the terrorists that have taken away your loved one without embracing them as Tahinr did? Bottom line is that you have to 'let it go' or you will be consumed by your own personal mix of hate, revenge and finally guilt. That is if you actually are a decent, sane person.
I hate writing reviews because if a movie is good enough to merit the effort it often seems like any attempt to describe it is destined to fall short. That said, as a one time social worker who has experienced up-close the miseries of those without home and hope I found this a remarkably accurate portrayal of the lives that can result. Having forgone the usual formulaic pap the author does an excellent job or recreating the "feel" of having no place to lay your head at night as well as the constant tension of never knowing who or what you can trust. The usual simplistic Hollywood <more>
garbage is happily absent and one finds oneself immersed in a world of bewildering complications and contradiction. Making it through each day becomes the goal and winning means little more than living to suffer another day. Such are the lives of far too many in America and elsewhere. Happily many of the "bad" guys are shown as victims themselves of a broken system rather than the arch villains of yore. Some try their best to accommodate, others try their best to take advantage of the person's vulnerability. You can't help but sympathize with the former and hate the later. While I can't even imagine trying to play the role of the two lead characters both did an excellent job and gained and held my sympathy from beginning to end. Jobs well done! And I can only guess at what cost. Camera work was excellent throughout with some of the dream like sequences outstanding. All in all a wonderful film and one I heartily will recommend to friends.
I cannot believe I am writing a review as I never do. This is a gut and heart wrenching movie. I am sitting in silence and almost in shock. Incredible story of life on the street for this unlikely couple that might never have met under other circumstances. An important movie for our times. Gives a great understanding of the perils of living on the street. Watch it!
Unexpected (by chungs69)
This is Paul Bettany's debut as a director and a writer and what a debut. This movie captures one's attention from the very beginning. The movie has many twists and turns while telling a story about an ignored group of people in today's society. It plays on the emotions of the audience from high to low. Jennifer Connelly and Anthony Mackie display good screen chemistry and play off each other really well throughout the movie. Jennifer Connelly was really believable and this is perhaps her best role to date. Anthony Mackie is equally mesmerizing in his performance. This is a well <more>
written and directed movie with wonderful acting. I would recommend this as a must see.

Great Homeless Interracial Love Story (by KATO-SUBZERO)
Sunday, 15 November 2015: First up, I totally 100% support All Interracial Love stories between men and women. I love to see movies and t.v show where skin color does Not matter, but what's in the heart and mind of two people. Jennifer and Anthony did a great job from start to finish. Anthony did a good job with his accent.This movie was a good movie. Wonder why I have not seen it in Red Box? I can totally relate the homeless situation personally. The movie only shows one time when they actually take a shower. Who in real life would want to kiss or have sex with a person who has not taken <more>
a shower in who knows how many days or weeks? I like the fact that Anthony's character defended her and Jennifer's character stood by for better and worse. She loved him so much that she sold her body to get his meds. It was sad that she had lied so much to her father that when she finally told the truth, he did not believe her nor want to help her.The part I hated was this man who appears to help her get out of the cold, only does it for getting sex from her. This is very sad because it shows that men will only help women in need in exchange for sex which is Not true with all men. When Tahir finally catches them in the sex act, Tahir thinks she is being raped and beats the old man to a FUBAR.
I have no words for this beautiful and unexpected piece of gem...i watched it and not sure what is all about ...but after watching it i was speechless....great topic and sure an eye opening subject ...Jennifer Connelly and Anthony Mackie did a well job with their role...and i am surprised why its not well rated.i don't know why the junk movies are well rated that the producers are making and remaking it again and again...Paul Bettany is clearly sending a message with his debut direction and writing ..that he can do something with a topic that no other famous directors even bother to see.. <more>
its a powerful drama and worth watching... i think it deserve more than the average stars ...Go see it with your heart ...i am sure you will not regret it..
Powerful, but a little overly dramatic sometimes... (by kimimal)
I mostly went into this since I know next to nothing about this ignored world of the poor. I've always wanted to know more about it: how they got there in the first place, what it's like. But, of course, it's a touchy subject when a well-off white Asian like me gets involved, coming off as just some "rich" person wanting to look like a good person. Luckily, I hoped through this movie I could get to understand this world from the privacy of my home and a box of popcorn. Thankfully, no one came barging in to say how much of a douche I am, and I gained an understanding that <more>
really answered some questions I had.Since I really have no other sources to draw from, I've put my faith into what the movie has presented as things the poor could face in their life. Of course, movies cannot be completely trusted; I honestly found a few moments overly dramatic and a bit cringy, but the feeling stayed the same, the overwhelming feeling that I don't feel as often anymore.It's helplessness. Shelter presents the feeling of helplessness phenomenally throughout the film, and it's probably a feeling the homeless feel all the time.If you put yourself into their shoes for every time they had a problem and tried to fix it with what they had, you'd only be left with helplessness, and it only gets worse and worse as the film progresses and most would call it dramatic, and at times, it truly is as mentioned before. But considering the circumstances, I'd probably end up doing the same exact things.It's dramatic because helplessness breeds anxiety and desperation which causes drama. The drama it has is delivered very well, yet the reviews for the movie tend to be critical of it. It's like how horror movies living off jumpscares are stereotypically called bad, even though jumpscare-heavy movies can be good if delivered the right way. This trend of stereotyping is getting obnoxious to the point where good movies are becoming forgotten and hated. It's very disheartening. This movie made me teary eyed, desperate, helpless, anxious, bittersweet, forgiving, shocked; it has given me more emotions than any movie I've seen in a long time, and there's hardly any moments where you question their decisions for there truly was nothing left for them to do.I can't hate the movie, for you can't hate something for being honest, so here's a 8/10. I think this is a great film. I think it's very powerful. I think people should consider the context behind the drama to find that it's necessary. I think people shouldn't hate things for making them so depressed because that's literally life. And if you can't come to accept tragedy, look out because there usually won't be someone there to keep you from jumping.
This is the story of two NYC homeless people. Tahir Anthony Mackie is from an African Nation that politically correct word checks don't allow. He has overstayed his VISA, but they won't ship him back. He is living on the streets playing plastic buckets as drums for donations. He espies Hanna Jennifer Connelly another homeless person with a heroin addiction. They do well apart, and their troubles begin when these two people worlds apart come together and try to live as a couple with semi-deep theological discussions.The film shows a little bit about the shelter system, but not <more>
enough to be an exposé, just a sad drama. The film is well done and acted, although it does jump a couple of times. For those that like sad slow moving realistic dramas to make their life feel better, this is the one.Guide: F-bomb, implied sex, brief nudity.
