Take Shelter - Acting Analysis - part 1

This Acting Analysis clip take a look at Jeff Nichols' fantastic movie "Take Shelter". There's a lot to cover so this is part 1 for now, and the sequence I'm looking at is very short but hopefully serves as a springboard for ideas in terms of how you can showcase your main actor's character through their interaction with surrounding minor characters, in this case a father and his daughter. It's a small moment but I really like the idea of secondary action in shots and if you can establish a broader canvas of your character through that then then why not try it out in your next shot?
