Andrew Garfield may have spent the summer swinging through New York City and battling bad guys as Peter Parker , but he faces a much different enemy in the upcoming drama “99 Homes.” The first look at the highly anticipated movie just arrived, right before hitting the autumn film festival circuit.
Co-starring Michael Shannon, the film tackles the difficult economic climate of the past several years. Here’s the official synopsis: Desperate to save his family home, an unemployed construction worker (Andrew Garfield) joins an unscrupulous realtor in the dirty business of foreclosing on the disenfranchised, in this enthralling and timely drama from acclaimed director Ramin Bahrani.
’99 Homes’ is directed by Ramin Bahrani, the man behind the flawed but fascinating “At Any Price,” “Goodbye Solo” and “Chop Shop.” The movie premieres at the Venice Film Festival and will make its North American debut at the Toronto Film Festival. [EW]
