Oscar Watch: “A Most Violent Year” Fights Through 1980s New York

 

Big news today regarding this year’s Oscar watch, as A24 has announced that its highly anticipated flick A Most Violent Year is set for a December 31 release in New York and Los Angeles. The movie goes wide in January 2015, and A24’s decision signals that the Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac feature may be an awards race player.

Clocking in at 110 minutes, A Most Violent Year centers on an immigrant (Isaac) who is doing whatever it takes to keep his family safe, sound, and prosperous in 1981 New York City. The teaser trailer, which has just been released, Isaac resembling a young Al Pacino in a narrative that could have been directed by late filmmaker Sidney Lumet – the craftsman behind such Big Apple crime dramas as Serpico and Prince of the City. The man behind the camera is J.C. Chandor, who previously directed the first rate flicks All Is Lost and Margin Call.
