Story


"A Most Violent Year" is a searing crime drama set in New York City during the winter of 1981, statistically the most dangerous year in the city's history. From acclaimed writer/director J.C. Chandor, and starring Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) and Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty), this gripping story plays out within a maze of rampant political and industry corruption plaguing the streets of a city in decay.

J.C. Chandor's third feature examines one immigrant's determined climb up a morally crooked ladder, where simmering rivalries and unprovoked attacks threaten his business, family, and - above all - his own unwavering belief in the righteousness of his path. With "A Most Violent Year", Chandor journeys in a bold new direction, toward the place where best intentions yield to raw instinct, and where we are most vulnerable to compromise what we know to be right.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Isaac keeps us guessing as to Abel's intentions and his strategies, and it matches the unpredictability of "A Most Violent Year" itself..”
by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap]
“..led by Oscar Isaac, who is superb as an independent businessman trying not to get dirty in a dirty world, this compelling tale will have to fight for any headway in the market but will impress discerning viewers with its skill at dramatizing things..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
“..this scrappy Koch-era New York had it especially rough, but it's almost incidental information, given a film with such bone-deep moxie..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
