Movie: At Any Price

 

Synopsis: In the competitive world of modern agriculture, ambitious Henry Whipple (Dennis Quaid) wants his rebellious son Dean (Zac Efron) to help expand his family’s farming empire. However, Dean has his sights set on becoming a professional race car driver. When a high-stakes investigation into their business is exposed, father and son are pushed into an unexpected crisis that threatens the family’s entire livelihood.


 

What I thought: Who would have guessed that farming would be so damn interesting (the family anyways, not so much the corn). Rich in drama, and Zac Efron has some cool racing scenes. Vrooom! Vrooom! Director Ramin Bahrani successfully blended many different themes together to create a compelling story that not only builds, but holds your attention. Dennis Quaid was solid as the modern farmer, complete with his goofy smile. Mr. Efron continues to impress now that he is taking on dangerous roles that are not centered on high school & singing. Cool film yo’. Totes check it out when it gets released in April.
