As we're gearing up for this year's film festival, one of the films that I'm crazy excited for is Shelter, directed by Eran Riklis. The story is a drama centered around a Mossad agent who is assigned to protect a Lebanese informant while she recovers from plastic surgery. The two must learn to overcome their initial distrust for the good of their cause. It promises to be gripping, heartfelt, and mess-yourself suspenseful. From what I've seen, Shelter seems like the amalgamation of James Bond and Goodnight Mommy, but without Daniel Craig (and less creepy Dutch children.)
You can check the trailer out here: Shelter Trailer #1
You can catch Shelter on Wednesday, March 21st, at 1:15, or on Friday the 23rd at 9:45, both at the Savoy Theater in Montpelier.
Tickets are available online at www.Gmffestival.org
I hope to see you there!
