|"all we’re left with is a misguided and emotionally numb affectation of other, more assured dramas"|
Adapted from a Raymond Carver story, Dan Rush’s Everything Must Go stars Will Ferrell as a washed up alcoholic whose life has hit rock bottom.
Nick Halsey (Ferrell) is an executive salesman who, after a drunken incident whilst away on a business trip, loses his job and his wife all in the same day. After being ordered to pack up his desk, he returns home to find the locks have been changed, his bank account closed and all his belongings lay carelessly on the front lawn. With nowhere else to go and no money to remove his things, he decides to camp out in his front garden, sleeping on his lazy boy chair whilst drinking excessively to numb the pain.
