4.0 out of 5 stars Iowa farm drama resonates with some great preformances May 25 2013
By Paul Allaer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
"At Any Price" (2013 release; 105 min.) brings the story of Henry (played by Dennis Quaid) and his farm family in Iowa. Henry owns a big farm and sells genetically-modified seeds, and is struggling to keep this 4th generation farm going. His oldest son Grant has left the family for adventures abroad (mountain climbing in Argentina) and his youngest son Dean (played by Zac Efron) is a dirt track racer dreaming to break into the big times (ARCA, then NASCAR). Henry is losing customers to a rival, but is unexpectedly getting some help from Dean's girlfriend Cadence (played by Maika Monroe). Henry also has a girlfriend on the side, Meredith (played by Heather Graham), who in turn has her eyes on Dean. Then one day, Henry gets investigated by Liberty, the company from which Henry gets his seeds, for possibly cleaning/re-using the seeds for more than one crop. To tell you more of this plot-heavy movie would surely ruin your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Several comments: first, the plot at times seens contrived, almost soap-like, but somehow it all works out well as the movie progresses. Of more interest are the performances. Zac Efron continues to try and evolve away from his early Disney days, building on his most recent role in "The Paperboy" (where ho co-starred with Nicole Kidman). I am a huge fan of Heather Graham, but she is under-used, and type-cast, as the sexy siren. Dennis Quaid gets the better of the deal as he gets to show his chops as the tormented and frustrated farmer/dad/lover. But the breakout role is from Maika Monroe, a new-comer for me, as the girlfriend of Dean, I am looking forward to seeing her in future roles! Bottom line: this is an entertaining family farm drama, warts and all. As a complete aside, there was a recent Supreme Court case on this very issue of farmers re-using genetically modified seeds for a second or third crop without paying the seeds manufacturers (the farmer lost the case).

This movie showed up unannounced in the art-house theatre here in Cincinnati on a single screen and when I went to see it this weekend, I got a private showing, literally, as I was the only person in the theatre. I figure this won't play long here, but glad I saw it. If you have a chance to see "At Any Price", be it in the theatre or on DVD, go for it!

4.0 out of 5 stars "A POWERFUL, DYNAMIC FAMILY DRAMA!" April 26 2013
By Geraldine Ahearn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
A rebellious, tough teenager played by Efron, would prefer to race cars anytime, rather than being responsible enough to take over the family farming business. However, his father, played by Dennis Quaid, has an entirely different opinion as he worries about the weak economy and changing farming climate. Acting Performance was good, and the story grabs your attention, with a thought-provoking ending. The theme of this movie is based on the economic crisis, and how it affects the American dream. The story also reflects that business comes before pleasure, especially in today's world. The drama becomes intense with an impressive ending, which makes you think about how serious the economic crisis can be in our lives. This movie makes you think about what happened to the land of opportunity, a once promised land, and the cost of the American dream. Engaging, moving, entertaining. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Complex and compelling Sept. 1 2013
By Jon Ludbetter - Published on Amazon.com
This is not a typical Hollywood film with black and white characters, a simple plot, and an uncomplicated happy ending (although it seems that reviewers who were stingy with their stars were expecting something more along those lines). Dennis Quaid is a portrait of tension and angst, trying to maintain a veneer of ethics while he dabbles in dubious practices under economic pressures. He's easy to dislike, but his character is hard to write off, and scarily easy to identify with. Definitely enough intrigue to keep things rolling, and some beautiful imagery (love the turbines alongside the corn) and powerful, realistic dialogue.
This isn't a film that let's you feel high and mighty or that delivers clear ideas of good and evil. The world is a muddled place. Keeping yourself clean is as difficult as removing silk from an ear of corn.

1.0 out of 5 stars mistake Sept. 23 2013
By lake - Published on Amazon.com

awarded one star as this review was incomplete without a star, is it possible to use negative stars, kept waiting for some value, no value found, possibly the worst movie I ever watched, real disappointed with writing, cast and story, credits were the best part of the movie as they symbolized the end of time I will never get back in my life

2.0 out of 5 stars `Am I a happy man? How can I not be?' Aug. 30 2013
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Note: possible Spoiler Alert

Yes, this quote actually comes out of the mouth of one of the more irresponsible self-serving egocentric characters created for a film - one Henry Whipple. And that is only for starters. This mess of a film (written by Hallie Newton and adapted for the screen by writer/director Ramin Bahrani) is an American Midwest epic about crime down on the farm, but no one seems to notice that is the topic. It reminds us of that old Midwest saying `He's so dumb he couldn't pour pee out of a side-laced boot with the directions written on the heel'.

Henry Whipple (Dennis Quaid) inherited a family corn farm and continues the long family tradition of making it a success in Iowa - even to the point of becoming involved in a criminal malfeasance that has to do with seed. He has two sons - All American athlete Grant (Patrick W. Stevens), who has wisely left this station to climb mountains in Argentina, and Dean (Zac Efron), who hates the farm and loves destruction derby car racing and glibly tells his father he will have nothing to do with the `family farm inheritance' - and a wife (Kim Dickens) who is so passive that her only positive gesture, other than serving lemonade to the annual customer appreciation crowd, is to give Dean $15,000 to join the racing industry - a waste because Dean is unprepared to cope with his dream. Henry womanizes with Meredith (Heather Graham) - so does Dean - but that's OK. Dean robs and murders, but that's OK. And when the Whipple farm faces a possible end, Henry lies his way out of it with some wimpy reparation and more lemonade and dancing at the customer appreciation picnic. Even Dean's abused well-meaning girlfriend (Maika Monroe) is able to just smile and move on. The only character who seems to have some respect is our mountain climbing Grant who has left this weakened family. End.

It might be possible to simple label this flimsy little film as boring, but it is so meaningless and mean-spirited that it likely will cause a mix of anger and disgust in the viewer. Have we really dropped this low in the lack of decency? Grady Harp, August 13
