A construction worker and single father (Garfield) loses his home after failing to keep up repayments but when the shark who bought his home (Shannon) offers him work, he can’t afford to refuse.

★★★★

Andrew Garfield dances with the devil in this gripping American real estate drama. He’s a construction worker and single father who loses his home after failing to keep up repayments. When the shark who bought his home (Shannon) offers him work, he can’t afford to refuse.

It’s a heart-breaking, authentic insight into the devastation caused by the 2008 housing market crash. Some plot developments are more convincing than others, but it’s still a compelling drama with an impressive turn from Garfield as well as Shannon and Dern as Garfield’s concerned mother.
