The first clip from 99 Homes has been released today ahead of its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival this weekend, along with the official synopsis and a statement from director Ramin Bahrani:
Around the world, everyone knows that honest hard work gets you nowhere. In sunny Orlando, Florida, construction worker Dennis Nash (Andrew Garfield) is evicted from his home by a charismatic, gun-toting real-estate broker Mike Carver (Michael Shannon), and is forced to move his mom (Laura Dern) and young son into a shabby motel. Then, an unexpected opportunity arises and Nash strikes a deal with the devil – he begins working for Carver in a desperate attempt to get his home back. Carver seduces Nash into a risky world of stealing from banks and the government. Nash makes big money; but there’s a cost. On Carver’s orders, Nash must evict honest families from their homes – just as it happened to him. With his conscience tearing him apart and an incredibly lucrative 1,000 home deal on the line, Nash will have to choose between destroying an honest man for the ultimate win or going against Carver and finding redemption
Here’s the director’s statement:
The 99% is a global phenomenon. The common man around the world can no longer do hard honest work and expect to thrive against systematic greed and corruption. When faced by the firing squad, does a man join hands with his executioner? Is there any choice to make other than a deal with the devil?
The gallery has just been updated with over 1350 Blu-Ray quality screen captures of Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker / Spider-Man from this summer’s comic book film The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Please note that there are major spoilers if you haven’t seen the film yet.
