99 HOMES
2014, Broad Green Pictures, 112 min, USA, Dir: Ramin Bahrani

Anchored by outstanding central performances, this timely thriller is set in 2010, when Florida led the nation in foreclosures. One of the victims of that economic freefall is recently evicted single father Dennis Nash (Andrew Garfield). Desperate to provide for his mother (Laura Dern) and son (newcomer Noah Lomax), Nash makes a deal with the devil – predatory real estate magnate Rick Carver (Michael Shannon). Carver and his unethical practices had cost Nash his home, but the money to be made by gaming the system at Carver’s behest could prove impossible to resist.
