A MOST VIOLENT YEAR hits theatres in NY and LA on December 31, 2014 and will expand in January 2015. Check out this new clip of Oscar Isaac teaching his new employees “the art of the sell.” A MOST VIOLENT YEAR is a seedy crime-drama set in New York city in the winter of 1981. It was statistically the most dangerous year in the city’s history. Starring the extremely talented Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain, this gripping story plays out within a maze of rampant political and industry corruption plaguing the streets of a city in decay. Abel Morales (Oscar Isaac) is an immigrant who is determined to climb up the ladder and have a successful business, even if it is a morally crooked ladder.
The film has Oscar contender written all over it. From acclaimed writer/director J.C. Chandor, we see the journey of one man trying to protect his business and his family during the most dangerous year in the city’s history.
