First look: Andrew Garfield squares off with Michael Shannon in '99 Homes'
Spider-Man would never cross paths with General Zod, but in 99 Homes, Andrew Garfield plays a desperate blue-collar construction worker whose family is evicted when the bank forecloses on their home during the economic downturn. In order to get back in their house, he makes a dirty deal to work for Michael Shannon’s crooked real-estate broker, the same man who caused his trouble in the first place.
Directed by Ramin Bahrani (At Any Price), 99 Homes will have its world premiere debut at the Venice Film Festival later this month before coming to North America for the Toronto Film Festival in September, where it will look for a distributor. Laura Dern and Noah Lomax (Safe Haven) co-star.
