A Most Violent Year is a crime drama set in New York City during the winter of 1981, statistically the most dangerous year in the city’s history. 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 unwavering belief in the righteousness of his own path. The film stars Oscar Issac, Jessica Chastain, David Oyelowo, Alessandro Nivola and Albert Brooks.
