Known for his neorealistic touches in his first two features especially (Chop Shop and Man Push Cart), I’ve been curious as to where Ramin Bahrani is headed for his latest and certainly largest production yet. Led by Zac Efron, Dennis Quaid and Heather Graham, At Any Price follows “a rebellious son whose dreams of becoming a professional race-car driver are derailed when his father’s farming empire becomes the target of a high-stakes investigation.”
With that curious plot we’ve now got news we’ll be able to see it unfold, as Sony Pictures Classics has acquired the film for a US release. As usual, the studio has been busy stacking up a promising slate, with Cannes titles Michael Haneke‘s Amour and Jacques Audiard‘s Rust & Bone set to be released laster this year. They also have the Gael Garcia Bernal-led No and Smashed, featuring a career-best performance from Mary Elizabeth Winstead, but no dates set yet for those. While we wait for more news on At Any Price, check out the first stills above and below.
At Any Price will show at Venice and TIFF.
