If there has been single characteristic that has marked Jeff Nichols' three films to date (and we're aware we're being a bit reductive here), it's that they usually center on extraordinary stories that take place in the most unlikely, everyday settings. From a familial feud to an impending apocalypse to a fairy tale of sorts in "Shotgun Stories," "Take Shelter" and "Mud," Nichols has established himself as a writer/director with a unique voice that doesn't need big special effects and budgets to wow an audience. But his next movie might have a couple of explosions (sort of).
