Touching and emotional drama of life and moral reasoning it proves that family last.
10 September 2013 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

"At Any Price" is one of those films that entertains with drama and tragedy it shows that life is forever changing and it shows the uncertain side of the business world. Still thru it all no matter what at any price family will prevail and survive. Set in Iowa in the heartland of farming country you have Henry Whipple(the still good veteran Dennis Quaid) who with greed and desire wants to expand his modern agriculture business and be number one. Only problem is his loose cannon son Dean(Zac Efron)wants no part of the business he wants to become a professional race car driver. On top of that a high stakes investigation into the family business is exposed and it changes the family outlook and the film takes unexpected twist and dramatic turns. Kim Dickens is supportive as Henry's wife despite the fact that Henry is cheating on her with the local and hot attractive slut(Heather Graham). And some eye candy is added with scenes of Dean's girlfriend who's a sexy colored bra wearing girl! Overall this film is about fate and coming to terms with honesty thru family with faith and determination and will power. As "At Any Price" is one film to learn life lessons from.
