Watch: Official US Trailer for Ramin Bahrani's Latest Film '99 Homes'
"Fifty dollars shouldn't be a joke to you, son!" Broad Green Pictures has finally debuted an official trailer for 99 Homes, the latest film from Ramin Bahrani, a very talented American filmmaker who has worked in the indie scene for years. A few years ago we were big supporters of At Any Price, but recommend any of Bahrani's previous films: Man Push Cart, Chop Shop, Goodbye Solo, etc. Also - see this one. 99 Homes stars Andrew Garfield as a young father, who decides to join the real estate business and work for the man that took his house from him. Michael Shannon co-stars, along with Laura Dern. The film is very powerful, and emotionally draining, but a very important film for these times. It's tough to watch, but so well made.
Here's the official US trailer for Ramin Bahrani's 99 Homes, found originally on YouTube:
99 Homes is directed by Ramin Bahrani (Man Push Cart, Chop Shop, Goodbye Solo, At Any Price) and written by Amir Naderi and Bahareh Azimi‐Khoie. The story follows an unemployed contractor (Andrew Garfield) who gets evicted from his family home with his mother and his nine‐year old son. Desperate to get his home back, he strikes a deal to work for the powerful, greedy, charming, gun‐toting real estate broker (Michael Shannon) who evicted him. While it puts a roof over his son’s head, becoming the broker’s apprentice puts the contractor in a moral bind where he must decide if providing a home for his family is worth sacrificing his soul and values. The film premiered at the Venice Film Festival & TIFF in late 2014. Broad Green Pictures will finally release Bahrani's 99 Homes in theaters starting September 25th, 2015.
