Like Richard Gere’s Time Out of Mind a couple of months ago, Shelter is a sucker-punch drama about New York’s homeless that explores the problem from the perspective of those living on the streets as they huddle from the elements and scramble to survive day-to-day in tragic anonymity. The movie, directed by actor-turned-filmmaker Paul Bettany, is made with sympathy and compassion. Its intentions are noble. Its gaze is harshly realistic. But it’s also overly melodramatic. Bettany has the makings of better director than screenwriter.
