I don't like Andrew Garfield as a person due to seeing the videos on YouTube of how negatively he reacts towards the Paparazzi, but as an actor he is excellent at his job and manages to make his character in this movie likable.
Michael Shannon is also great in his role, even though his character is making a living doing wrong things there is still something likable about him.
Laura Dern gives a fantastic performance as Garfield's mother, even the little boy who plays the son/grandson does a good job with his small role, the casting director made a great choice overall.
A lot of things can be learned by watching 99 Homes, one imperative thing being is to always pay your bills and don't get yourself into debt, always get in contact with your lawyers because evicted tenants still have rights and options. These people listened to these evictors and did not contact their lawyers which got them sinking deeper and deeper into quicksand.
The main male lead played by Garfield had other options, but he wanted to make quick cash which got him nowhere.
To sum this movie up in 3 words - it's a drama flick about greed, dishonesty, and desperation.
