Jeff Nichols (born December 7, 1978) is an American film director and screenwriter from Little Rock, Arkansas. He studied filmmaking at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. Nichols is most known for his films Take Shelter (2011), Mud (2012), and Loving (2016), which have been critically acclaimed.
So far, all films directed by Nichols have featured the brilliant Michael Shannon, either in a leading role (Shotgun Stories, Take Shelter, Midnight Special) or supporting capacity (Mud, Loving). Here at Deathbyfilms, we are huge fans of both Jeff Nichols and Michael Shannon, and look forward to their next project.
