Set in 1981, a year of record high crime rates in New York, A Most Violent Year follows the story of immigrant Abel Morales and his family as they try to defend the life and business they have built. Typifying the American dream, Abel owns the company he once worked as driver for and displays his new wealth with expensive clothes and lavish properties. Committed to honest, legal business Abel’s ethos is at odds with the increasingly corrupt world surrounding him. This tense drama features a subdued, thoughtful performance from Oscar Issac as a man struggling to uphold his ethics against the looming threat of violence.
Later remade with Al Pacino, this 1932 gangster drama charts the rise of a ruthless crime boss modelled on notorious US mobster Al Capone.
