 Shelter JC

The final title card of Shelter, Paul Bettany’s first foray as a writer/director, dedicates the film ‘for the couple which lived outside of my building’. The couple disappeared after Hurricane Sandy and to this day, neither Bettany nor his wife and star of Shelter, Jennifer Connelly, know what became of them. This card sets the scene for what is to come, a powerful though at times problematic, tale of love, dignity, and survival on the streets of New York.
