A Most Violent Year

In this loaded slow burn of a thriller, the director of Margin Call turns the same forensic skills to the nexus of crime and business in an earlier era. Its 1981, a peak year in the annals of New York violence, but Abel (Oscar Isaac), proud owner of an indie oil sales company, has the big time within his grasp. Hes paid the deposit on the Jersey waterfront storage thats going to make all the difference and all he needs is 30 days to raise the rest. But someone, somewhere, is determined to squeeze him out  and the nasty surprises keep on coming. Abels a sharp operator  as a pep talk to his sales team makes super clear  but hes determined to take on his opposition by legitimate means. His wife Anna (Jessica Chastain) sees things differently: playing by the rules was not the way her father made his fortune.
