Host Violet Kanian

You can’t pu a price on the opportunity to sit down with actor Dennis Quaid and director Ramin Bahrani and talk about their new film At Any Price opening nationwide this Friday. Press Pass LA’s Violet Kanian spoke to them about what it was like filming this movie, what’s up next for the pair, and why Dennis Quaid thinks his co-star Zac Efron is the next James Dean.

The film explores the survival of one rural American family amidst today’s farming giants and big monopolies, and takes a look at the price of making tough decisions. Dennis Quaid stars as the ambitious Henry Whipple who 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. Also starring Heather Graham and newcomer Maika Monroe.

Press Pass LA also had the chance to peak with Maika who makes her debut in this film playing the girlfriend of Zac Efron’s character. She will soon be seen in Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring opposite Emma Watson and Leslie Mann and Jason Reitman’s Labor Day opposite Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin. Maika tells us what it was like to read for the role of Efron’s girlfriend and how her career has changed in just a short year!

At Any Price opens nationwide April 26th. Watch the trailer here.
