A Most Violent Year (Oscar Isaac) Trailer

A Most Violent Year

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.

JC Chandor’s gripping story plays out within a maze of rampant political and industry corruption plaguing the streets of a city in decay and 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.

This gritty exploration of the American dream stars Oscar Isaac and Jerssica Chastain in the leading roles as husband and wife Abel and Anna Morales, alongside a strong supporting cast including: Albert Brooks (Drive); David Oyelowo (The Butler); Alessandro Nivola (American Hustle); Catalina Sandino Moreno (Maria Full of Grace); and, British newcomer Elyes Gabel (Game of Thrones, Interstellar).

A Most Violent Year opens in UK cinemas on January 23, 2015.
