Closer Look: Pics for Dan Rush’s ‘Everything Must Go’

A film that is among the items at the top of my list for coverage at this year’s TIFF is Dan Rush’s directorial debut. Everything Must Go is a Black List script that placed high up as one of the top reads and unproduced screenplays.

A film that is among the items at the top of my list for coverage at this year’s TIFF is Dan Rush’s directorial debut. Everything Must Go is a Black List script that placed high up as one of the top reads and unproduced screenplays (so it should have plenty of buyers in the aud) – Rush comes from a music video director background and he made commercials for such companies as Sony, Major League Baseball, Dell Computers, Bell Atlantic and Discovery Networks before working in feature film development at Tristar Pictures.

After 16 years devising motivational speeches that promise certain success, Nick Porter (Will Ferrell) is abruptly fired. He returns home to discover his wife has left him, changed the locks on their home and dumped all his possessions on the front yard. Nick puts it all on the line – or, more properly, on the lawn – with an absurdly escalating garage sale that becomes a unique strategy for survival. Nick comes face-to-face with a life turned inside out and discovers in total exposure an unexpected path to renewal.
