Maria J. Langer Film Series: A Most Violent Year

Sunday, May 3, 2015 - 2:00pm
Taylor Little Theatre

In New York City, 1981 – the year of the city’s all-time-high crime rate – an ambitious immigrant struggles to grow his heating oil company against a backdrop of simmering rivalries and unprovoked attacks that threaten his business, his family and his unwavering belief in the righteousness of his own path. From writer/director J.C. Chandor and starring Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac, this gripping story slowly builds tension as it makes the case for the high cost of the American dream.
