Video Interview: Ramin Bahrani, Andrew Garfield and Laura Dern on "99 Homes"

Ramin Bahrani's "99 Homes" is a riveting take on the foreclosure housing crisis that left many Americans stranded. Set in Orlando, Florida Andrew Garfield plays Dennis Nash a construction worker who tries to save his family, mother (Laura Dern) and young son (Noah Lomax) from the horror of loosing their home when real-estate broker Rick Carver ( Michael Shannon) is at their doorstep to evict them. Nash soon learns in this cut throat world that it might be better to join them than to try and fight them, but at what moral cost?

Roger Ebert was always a great supporter of Bahrani's work, and the film is lovingly dedicated to him.

Film journalist Katherine Tulich sat down with Bahrani and stars Andrew Garfield and Laura Dern to talk about the film and their memories of Roger.
