A MOST VIOLENT YEAR, written and directed by J.C. Chandor, will be released in the UK and Ireland on 23 January 2015 through Icon Film Distribution, starring Golden Globe® nominee Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) and two-time Academy Award® nominee Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty).
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. 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.
