Reel Shorts | A Most Violent Year


On the latest episode of Reel Shorts, Travis Hopson and I discuss the crime drama, A Most Violent Year, on Around Town.

Set in New York City during the winter of 1981, statistically one of the most violent years in the city’s history, the film centers on the life of an immigrant and his family trying to expand their business and capitalize on opportunities as the rampant violence, decay, and corruption of the day drag them in and threaten to destroy all they have built.

Written and directed by J. C. Chandor, the film stars Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain with Alessandro Nivola, David Oyelowo, Albert Brooks, and Catalina Sandino Moreno.
