Adapted and directed by Dan Rush, and based on a short story by Raymond Carver, Everything Must Go tells the story of Nick Porter (Will Ferrell) a career salesman whose days of being on top are long gone. The same day Nick gets fired, for falling off the wagon one last time, he returns home to discover his wife has left him, changed the locks on their suburban home and dumped all his possessions out on the front yard. Faced with his life imploding, Nick puts it all on the line – or more properly, on the lawn – reluctantly holding a yard sale that becomes a unique strategy for survival. Everything Must Go also stars Rebecca Hall and Laura Dern.

Wallace.

Everything Must Go is Will Ferrell’s return to indie movies, in which he plays a man who lives in his front yard. This is more the Will Ferrell who once worked with Woody Allen, than the guy who did all those sports comedies and ran away from slow-moving Sleestacks.
