‘A Most Violent Year’
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.
