Tiff: Michael Shannon on '99 Homes' and why he'll never have a mortgage

12 September 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

If you’re a middle-class American with a mortgage and children, 99 Homes is a horror film, scarier than Halloween and Saw combined. The movie, which debuted in Venice and is looking for distribution at this week’s Toronto Film Festival, stars Andrew Garfield as Nash, a Florida construction worker circa 2006. Out of work and underwater on his mortgage during the housing meltdown, he’s evicted from his family home—along with his mother (Laura Dern) and young son (Noah Lomax). It’s the nightmare scenario: Police knock on the front door and give them two minutes to pack their essentials »

First Clip From 99 Homes Is Released

30 August 2014 10:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

What do you get if you put Spider-Man and General Zod in a movie together? Lots and lots of swearing – according to the clip from 99 Homes that was just released. That hard-hitting dialogue is indicative of the tone of the film, which is the latest directorial effort from Ramin Bahrani (At Any Price). Starring Andrew Garfield (The Amazing Spider-Man), Michael Shannon (Man Of Steel) and Laura Dern (The Fault In Our Stars), 99 Homes takes a swipe at the current global economic climate, through the crisis experienced by one family.

Written by Bahrani with Amir Nederi (Manhattan By Numbers) and Bahareh Azimi (Goodbye Solo), 99 Homes addresses the idea of the 99% versus the wealthiest of society, by pitching an everyday guy against a cold corporate entity. In what seems to be a tale of the will to survive, it asks the question, how far would you go to save yourself and those you love? »

Daily | Venice, Telluride + Toronto 2014 | Ramin Bahrani’s 99 Homes

29 August 2014 2:05 AM, PDT | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

"Ramin Bahrani has established himself as a filmmaker with a flair for dramatizing the experiences of new immigrant communities in the United States with excellent pictures like Man Push Cart and Goodbye Solo," writes the Guardian's Peter Bradshaw. Bahrani's 99 Homes, starring Andrew Garfield, Laura Dern and Michael Shannon, has premiered in Venice and will screen at Telluride and in Toronto. Bradshaw calls it "an exciting and emotionally grandstanding drama about temptation, shame, humiliation and greed—and it’s got something to say about America’s toxic-loan slump and how the taxpayer-funded bailout created a bonanza for big businesses who could make money out of the recession." We've got more reviews and a clip. » - David Hudson »

5 August 2014 7:25 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

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."

'99 Homes' is directed by Ramin Bahrani, the man behind the flawed but fascinating "At Any Price," "Goodbye Solo" and "Chop Shop."

2014 Ebertfest Slate Announced, Will Open with Steve James' Doc 'Life Itself'

20 March 2014 9:41 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It's been nearly a year since the death of Roger Ebert, but Ebertfest is still going strong, and this year gives the festival a new way to honor the late critic. The 16th annual Ebertfest will open with Steve James's "Life Itself," the documentary based on Ebert's memoir. James was first brought to national attention when Ebert and his "At the Movies" co-host Gene Siskel named his documentary "Hoop Dreams" as the best film of 1994. The lineup includes Ebert favorites such as Spike Lee's "Do the Right Thing," Ramin Barhani's "Goodbye Solo," and Oliver Stone's "Born on the Fourth of July." All three filmmakers will be in attendance, along with actress Brie Larson and her "Short Term 12" co-star Keith Stanfield, comedian/actor Patton Oswalt, and New Orleans piano bluesman Henry Butler. Oswalt, whose film "Big Fan" played at Ebertfest 2012, will present his 2011 film "Young Adult" and »

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #87. Ramin Bahrani’s 99 Homes

21 February 2014 6:45 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

99 Homes

Director: Ramin Bahrani

Writers: Ramin Bahrani, Amir Naderi, Bahareh Azimi‐Khoie

Producer(s): Ashok Amritraj (see pic above), Ramin Bahrani, Andrew Garfield, Justin Nappi, Kevin Turen

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Andrew Garfield, Laura Dern, Michael Shannon, Tim Guinee

At Any Price came from the same earnest place as Chop Shop and Goodbye Solo and Ramin Bahrani had the luxury of working with a bigger budget/name cast garnishings, but the end result was a poorly conceived and executed cornhusk melodrama. My thinking is that this portrait of Americana will include a bit more bite. Employing the services of cinematographer Bobby Bukowski, with thesps Laura Dern and Michael Shannon in the mix, it’s fair to say that we might reach some authentic dramatic heights with the curiously titled, 99 Homes.

Gist: Set against the backdrop of the economic crisis, the drama revolves around an unemployed contractor who »
