After a successful run on the festival circuit, 99 Homes is finally heading to theatres. Starring Andrew Garfield and Michael Shannon, Ramin Bahrani’s gripping film follows a father (Garfield) who struggles to get his home back after being evicted from it. However, standing in his way is a greedy real estate broker (Shannon) who’s not making things easy.
Earning a sufficient amount of acclaim up to this point, there’s good reason to be excited for 99 Homes. Our very own Jordan Adler reviewed it back at TIFF and had the following to say about it:
A searing, compassionate movie set in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, 99 Homes is one of the finest films about contemporary American life.
Last week, at the LA press day for the film, we had the chance to catch up with both Shannon and Garfield for an exclusive interview. They spoke about the message of the story, the connection between their characters, what each actor brought to the project and much more.
Check out what they had to say in the video above and be sure to catch 99 Homes when it hits theatres this Friday!
