Andrew Garfield and Michael Shannon lead this charged, Venice Film Festival-winning drama. After being evicted from their home, a family’s father – desperate for cash – becomes the reluctant employee of the ruthless real estate broker who kicked them out.
Dennis Nash (Garfield) isÂ caught from both sides by aÂ property slump – aÂ construction worker by trade,Â he can’t find work, plus theÂ bank has foreclosed on hisÂ family home, and they’re
turfed out. Suddenly on theÂ streets with no assets orÂ income, a chance meetingÂ sees Nash literally shovellingÂ crap for ruthless real estateÂ operator Rick CarverÂ (Shannon). Seeing somethingÂ in Nash, Carver puts him toÂ work, introducing him to theÂ shady games played in theÂ aftermath of a burst propertyÂ bubble. There’s money to beÂ made, but there are also lives
to be destroyed. . .
â€œ Dynamic and passionate,Â thrumming with barelyÂ suppressed anger, this sleekÂ American indie has the brainsÂ of a documentary, the soul ofÂ a moral fable and the beatingÂ pulse of a thriller. â€ 4 Â½ stars.Â NZ Herald.
