A Most Violent Year is a 2014 action crime drama directed by J.C. Chandor. The story is set in New York in 1981, the most violent year in the city's history and focuses on the struggles of Abel Morales (Oscar Isaac) and his wife Anna (Jessica Chastain) in the management of their heating oil business. Under investigation by the city for shady business practices, Abel is put under an increasing amount of pressure as the result of an expensive deal for company expansion and a spate of violent hijackings plaguing his drivers. As the hijackings become more brazen and the losses become greater, Abel struggles with the decision to fight violence with violence, keep his business afloat, and keep his family intact. The film was released in the US in December of 2014 and Chandor would reunite with actor Isaac for the 2019 Netflix film Triple Frontier.
