99 Homesis a timely thriller, telling the story of single father Dennis Nash (Golden Globe nominee Andrew Garfield). When he is evicted from his home, his only chance to win it back is to go to work for Rick Carver (Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon), the charismatic and ruthless businessman who evicted him in the first place. It’s a deal-with-the-devil that provides security for his family; but as Nash falls deeper into Carver’s web, he finds his situation grows more brutal and dangerous than he ever imagined.
99 Homestouches on issues faced by families affected by the housing crisis including homelessness and a lack of resources. To shed light on the situation, Broad Green Pictures has created 99 Homes: 99 Good Deeds, a unique charitable initiative to help those with the various issues surrounding homelessness. The program is meant to underscore the positive impact that even the smallest amounts of assistance can have; encouraging individuals to perform one good deed to help a member of their community.
