“At Any Price” is a new film starring Zac Efron, Dennis Quaid and Heather Graham. I’m telling you about it because Zac Efron’s character is a young man who dreams of racing in the big leagues of NASCAR one day, but that’s not what the movie really, really about.
The plot is this:
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.
I’m intrigued and not just because it has a racing plot point but mostly because it looks interesting. I don’t know much about how the world of farming has changed and I’m curious how the “unexpected crisis” unfolds, PLUS Roger Ebert gave it a good review. I trust that man.
