Dennis Quaid and Heather Graham in “At Any Price.”
 

"AT ANY PRICE," starring Dennis Quaid, Zac Efron, Heather Graham, Kim Dickens, Clancy Brown and Maika Monroe. Directed by Ramin Bahrani. The son of a prominent seed farmer defies his father's wishes to take over the family business by choosing to become a professional race-car driver in this family drama. Former high-school quarterback Henry Whipple (Quaid) has worked hard to maintain his father's lucrative farming empire. He always dreamt of passing the family business along to his beloved oldest son Grant, though when Grant leaves the farm to explore the world, Henry places his hopes for the future on the shoulders of his youngest son Dean (Efron), who would rather be racing stock cars than working the soil. Meanwhile, fellow farmer Jim Johnson (Brown) has been poaching away Henry's customers while steadily expanding his own thriving business. As Henry attempts to win back those straying clients, Dean begins to make a name for himself as a driver. Rated R; 1:45
