Ramin Bahrani’s “99 Homes” throbs with the public fury and private horror of the real-estate collapse.
Set in Orlando suburbs, the movie plunges into the ugly, contentious dramas of foreclosure. It’s a war movie where thresholds are the battle lines.
“This is our home!” cries Andrew Garfield’s Dennis Nash from his doorway when police and a real estate broker for the bank, Rick Carver (Michael Shannon), gather on his lawn to evict him, his young son (Noah Lomax) and his mother (Laura Dern).
The much-praised and long-awaited film “99 Homes” opens in six cities October 2, 2015 and nationally on October 9, 2015. The film is a fast-paced thriller that takes a hard look at the brutal reality of the foreclosure crisis. Audiences and critics have praised the film, particularly the performances of Andrew Garfield, Michael Shannon and Laura Dern, and the writing and direction of Ramin Bahrani.
