99 Homes is a searing, impeccably acted indictment of capitalism, especially as it functions in present-day American real estate. The film focuses on Florida construction worker Dennis Nash (Andrew Garfield), who has fallen behind on his mortgage payments due to lack of work. Desperate to keep the home he shares with his mother and son, his last-ditch attempt with the court system fails, and the family is tossed out by a fast-talking bank representative named Rick Carver (Michael Shannon). In a surprising turn of events, Nash soon finds himself accepting a job as one of Carver’s flunkies and thus enters a minefield of moral ambiguity.
