I think it was Andrew Garfield’s recent best performance. Because he hasn’t done any films lately since ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ critically failed. His role was awesome, but a struggling young single father. When he loses his inherited family house to the bank, he has no choice but to make a quick decision that can secure his family a roof over the head. But when the things get ugly, the new issues begin to appear, and with a narrow chance he tries to fix it.
Another excellent character in the movie that played by Michael Shannon. Not like you know this story very well, and wonderfully narrated story on the screen about what a desperate man can do with his small opportunity to rise again. You will know the twist is coming, but when and how is what we have to patiently wait for. I almost liked the entire film, except the end, which was a bit weak solution and stronger in the display.
This movie is reality, it shows real life experiences of how people were ripped off by wall street and their employees we call government.
Very well acted, but with a couple of distracting elements
I saw this at TIFF 2014 where it seemed to be received pretty positively.
Kudos to those involved with casting as every actor/actress, from the leading Andrew Garfield and Michael Shannon, right down to those who were only in one or two scenes, did a really good job. There were a lot of confrontational emotions in this movie and the actors/actresses did a great job of getting me to empathize with their characters. I had a hard time believing that Laura Dern’s young-looking character was Garfield’s character’s mother, but she acted well.
I felt that Bahrani struck a good balance between showing the audience Garfield’s character’s life with his family VS his professional life.
I found the music throughout the movie to be pretty appropriate. The music chosen for each scene complimented the dramatic tone of what was happening.
There were two things about the movie that bothered me enough to pull me out of the tense drama temporarily: (1) There were a couple of big coincidental moments (one of which is directly related to the final scene) that seemed a bit too fate-like. For a movie with the very real backdrop of the US housing market crash, and such believable characters, these unrealistic occurrences seemed out of place. (2) At one point, a montage format is used to quickly show Garfield’s character go through a bunch of different exchanges with other characters. This quick cutting from scenario to scenario is a missed opportunity to fully immerse us viewers in a couple of heart-wrenching moments. As a result, the mixed emotions that I recognized I was supposed to feel weren’t as strong as they could have been.
Overall, this drama was well done. I think it could have been better in some areas, but it was still a nice watch.
morals get into the way
Dennis Nash (Andrew Garfield) lives in Orlando, Florida with his mother Lynn (Laura Dern) and son Connor. He’s a single dad struggling to get by with his construction job when the housing crash takes the last bit away from him. The bank has foreclosed on his childhood home. Realty agent Rick Carver (Michael Shannon) leads the eviction. Dennis goes to argue over stolen tools during the eviction and Rick recruits him into his company. Rick runs scams to steal from the vacant homes to get reimbursed by the government or the banks. Dennis’ morality is muddled as he desperately tries to get his home back.
Michael Shannon is great as he portrays Rick Carver as the present-day Gordon Gekko. Garfield is fine although his character’s obsession with his childhood home gets into the way. It makes his decisions irrational. It also doesn’t make sense that he couldn’t simply move to another motel. Heck, he could move his family temporarily into one of their foreclosed properties for two weeks. The movie is trying to inject some nobility into Dennis artificially and push a moral structure into the movie’s framework. It would be simpler to see Dennis slowly accept his immorality. The final immorality against Frank Greene would be more compelling and more natural. This movie has some great scenes. The evictions are especially powerful. There is no reason to artificially construct the moral conflict. It’s in there naturally. Also it doesn’t need Laura Dern’s preaching.
