Trailerwatch: A Most Violent Year

AMVY FINAL POSTER[Note: I’ve already screened this film, but haven’t written the review yet.  Also, no spoilers ’til it opens at the end of December. Jazz hands!]

Looks like the Award Season Onslaught is here; films are starting to jockey for position in a big way, rather than the lower key festival season.  So, here’s the official trailer for A Most Violent Year, along with some 411!  And without spoilerage, I’ll leave you to it!

OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS: 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. From acclaimed writer/director J.C. Chandor, and starring Oscar Isaac (INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS) and Jessica Chastain (ZERO DARK THIRTY), this gripping story plays out within a maze of rampant political and industry corruption plaguing the streets of a city in decay.

J.C. Chandor’s third feature 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.
