‘A Most Violent Year’

(15)

Young immigrant Abel Morales (Oscar Issac) is a firm believer in the American Dream.

Through hard graft, he’s worked his way up the ladder and now runs a heating oil company.

Along the way, he married his former boss’s daughter, Anna (Jessica Chastain), and they live in a nice suburban home with their children. But this is corrupt, crime-ridden New York City in 1981. His crooked competitors don’t take kindly to an honest businessman in their midst.

So they launch a campaign of dirty tricks and violent intimidation that even puts Abel’s family in the firing line.

Meanwhile, the DA (David Oyelowo) launches an investigation into his business.

Writer/director J.C. Chandor follows the Oscar-nominated ‘Margin Call’ with this dark drama set in the backdrop of the most violent year in New York City history.
