Set during the winter of 1981 — statistically one of the most crime-ridden of New York City’s history — A Most Violent Year is a drama following the lives of an immigrant and his family as they attempt to capitalize on the American Dream, while the rampant violence, decay, and corruption of the day drag them in and threaten to destroy all they have built. A Most Violent Year represents another strong entry in writer-director J.C. Chandor’s impressive filmography. Our very own Colin Biggs called it a first-rate dissection of the American Dream. Only three films in and director J.C. Chandor has completely earned his reputation and thanks to Elevation Pictures, we are giving away double passes to advanced screenings in Vancouver, Ottawa, Calgary, Victoria and Winnipeg.
