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.
