If you have been reading my reviews on some of the new blu-ray/dvd's coming out (more geared towards adults than kids). You have probably noticed that I love a good suspense/drama. 99 Homes is a great movie.
This intense drama is set in 2010 Orlando during the housing crash. Rick Carver (Michael Shannon) is a real estate agent who makes his living on foreclosed properties.
Dennis Nash (Andrew Garfield) is an unemployed construction worker who meets Rick Carver under terrible situation. He hates Rick Carver as he moves his son (Noah Lomax ) and mom (Laura Dern) out of their family home into a low rent motel filled with displaced families.
Through many events, Dennis ends up working for Rick Carver, becoming the man he hates, doing a job he hates in economic times that makes a person question honorableness. Dennis performs tasks that are outright illegal, deceiving Fanny Mae and the taxpayers all in an effort to recover his home.
The film is compelling as you feel the intensity, for better or worse, of people getting evicted from their homes. The film also questions government polices and bank policies but offers no solutions as the results opens itself up for an easy union.
There is no sex or nudity, but the f-bomb does make an appearance.
