Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - This serious and fairly dark drama is a big dramatic showcase for stars Andrew Garfield and Michael Shannon. Laura Dern's role is fairly small. Constant language, some drug use, and mature subject matter in general make this film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good "99 Homes" is a ferocious excavation of the meaning of home, the desperation attached to real estate, the pride of ownership and the stability of belonging. The pace never lets up. Once a person slips below the mainstream, it is nearly impossible to gain a foothold again.

NY Post Full Review
Average There might be a great movie to be made out of the financial crisis, but "99 Homes,” which is like being shouted at by a man with bad breath while he grips your collar with both hands, isn't it.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Above Average Before it goes off the rails in the final stretch, 99 Homes is a riveting rabble-rouser that thinks it can make a difference. In these days when Hollywood typically dulls our wits, Ramin Bahrani's 99 Homes has a fire in its belly. It's spoiling to be heard.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The mounting tension begins as Rick Carver (Shannon), self-made Florida real estate magnate who makes a killing repossessing homes, evicts unemployed single dad Dennis Nash (Garfield) -- before Nash can even put up a fair fight against a bank that has cheated him. A shell-shocked Nash intends to stop at nothing to get his family's lifelong home back, and protect his mother (Academy Award nominee Laura Dern) and son (newcomer Noah Lomax) from the fallout. Pushed to the brink, he is lured by the charismatic Carver - the very man who seized his dreams, a man who knows how to work the very system that has ruined Nash - to enter the lucrative, law-skirting world of gaming the banks, the government and ordinary people to make a mint from foreclosures. The hope of regaining his life seduces Nash to makes a deal with the devil and to hide it from his family. But as his mission grows more brutal and ethically bankrupt, and as the cash rolls in, Nash comes to the realization that Carver's world of easy riches comes at a price he's no longer willing to pay.
