Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Feb 15th at 4:00pm for A Most Violent Year at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Brian F. wearing a black North Face jacket in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
A Most Violent Year is a searing crime drama set in New York City during the winter of 1981, statistically the most dangerous year in the city’s history. Starring Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) and Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty), this gripping story plays out within a maze of rampant political and industry corruption plaguing the streets of a city in decay. Writer/director J.C. Chandor’s (All Is Lost, Margin Call) third feature examines one immigrant’s determined climb up a morally crooked ladder, where simmering rivalries and unprovoked attacks threaten his business, family andabove allhis own unwavering belief in the righteousness of his path. With A Most Violent Year, Chandor journeys in a bold new direction, toward the place where best intentions yield to raw instinct, and where we are most vulnerable to compromise what we know to be right. Also starring David Oyelowo (Selma), Alessandro Nivola and Albert Brooks.
