The pair have since collaborated on “Take Shelter,” and “Mud”. “Take Shelter” won the Critics Week Grand Prize and the SACD Award for Best Feature at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival and also earned Nichols the Austin Film Award and Shannon the Best Actor Award from the Austin Film Critics Association. “Mud” was the recipient of the Film Independent Robert Altman Spirit Award and was one of the highest grossing independent films of 2013.
