Set during crime-ridden New York in 1981, JC Chandor’s latest film follows the trials and tribulations of an immigrant and his family as they attempt to capitalize on the American Dream while rampant violence, decay, and corruption threaten to destroy all they have built.
While Isaac’s character gets the brunt of the action, it appears Chastain will indulge in some Lady Macbeth type string-pulling from behind the scenes as well.
Albert Brooks co-stars in the film, which was acquired for domestic distribution by A24 during Sundance. Chandor is producing with Before the Door’s Neal Dodson and Washington Square Films’ Anna Gerb, while Participant’s Jeff Skoll is also involved in a producing capacity.
“A Most Violent Year” has been set for a Dec. 31 limited release following its world premiere at the AFI Film Festival in November.
