Andrew Garfield (The Social Network) and Michael Shannon (Take Shelter) give awards-worthy performances in Ramin Bahrani’s (Chop Shop) searing real-estate drama, a muscular moral tale. Garfield is single father Dennis Nash, who’s evicted from his family home with his mother (Laura Dern) and young son by Shannon’s repellent, reptilian property magnate Rick Carver. Worse is to come: desperate for work, he finds himself working for Carver, first undertaking shady odd-jobs, then rising to become his right-hand man, evicting others like himself. A gripping, gut-wrenching thriller, it dramatises the American real-estate crisis shows the reality of the devastation wreaked by market forces.

“A timely, terrifically acted moral nail-biter” **** Robbie Collin, Telegraph
