A Most Violent Year takes place in New York City in 1981, one of the most dangerous years on record. Abel Morales (played by Golden Globe nominee Oscar Isaac) is an ambitious immigrant focused on expanding his business. Writer/director J.C. Chandor follows up his debut, Margin Call, and his follow up 'All is Lost' with this exploration of pride, and people who are too proud for their own good. Recorded as part of the Film Independent at LACMA screening series.
