Less than a month ahead of its Venice Film Festival debut, the first 99 Homes image has gone online.  Andrew Garfield stars as “an unemployed contractor who gets evicted from his family home with his mother and his nine year old son. Desperate to get his home back, he strikes a deal to work for the powerful, greedy, charming, gun-toting real estate broker (Michael Shannon) who evicted him.”  As one of five people who liked Ramin Bahrani‘s previous film, At Any Price, I’m eager to see how the director/co-writer approaches a story that will apparently deal with the housing crisis and economic collapse.  At the very least, we’ll get to see an Andrew Garfield movie that doesn’t involve thousands of VFX shots.

Hit the jump to check out the 99 Homes image.  The film also stars Laura Dern and Noah Lomax.  The Venice Film Festival runs from August 29 – September 7th.  99 Homes, which is currently looking for distribution, will then make its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, which runs from September 4 – 14th.

Here’s the official synopsis for 99 Homes:

After his family is evicted, proud and desperate construction worker Dennis Nash (ANDREW GARFIELD) tries to win his home back by striking a deal with the devil and working for Rick Carver (MICHAEL SHANNON), the corrupt real estate broker who evicted him.

    Andrew Garfield as a contractor with a nine year-old son? They really couldn’t find anyone else for that?

      Maybe they are a young couple with a child…Garfield is 30 years old. Just a thought…

    “At the very least, we’ll get to see an Andrew Garfield movie that doesn’t involve thousands of VFX shots.” – well, you could try red riding, and never let me go… or the social network. i’m sure there are more.

      But the thing is it seems like he just gave up after the Social Network. I mean it’s been 4 years since then and the only thing he’s been in is spiderman movies. I just wish he would do more consecutive work and play roles like the ones in social network or boy A, etc.

    Dying to see this. Andrew needs a proper come back , this and filming Silence with Marty will do I think. He is a brilliant actor and showed a lot of promise when TSN
    came out. Those Spider-man movies unfortunately did nothing for his career. Michael
    Shannon of course is doing everything right.

    how come Michael Shannon, a terrific actor with many great performances (Take Shelter, Iceman, Mud the list goes on) did not get the recognition that mcconaughey got? Hes probably one of the most underrated actors working right now.

      He needs to be in true detective

    I’m really really glad to see Garfield in a non-Spider-Man work. He’s one of the best young actors around, he was so great in Social Network and Never Let Me Go, but he’s getting burned with the Spidey movies. As much as I want to love them, I have to admit they’re lame. And most of the projects Garfield gets involved goes to limbo: he was set to star in a movie with Jennifer Garner and another Doug Liman movie some years ago but the two were scrapped, and I’m pretty sure the same is happening with Scorcese’s Silence.
