Hard-hitting Trailer For A Most Violent Year

Oscar.jpg
It surely can’t be long before Oscar Isaac lives up to his name…
 
One Golden Globe nomination for his startling turn as the hipsterish hero in The Coen’s Inside Llewyn Davis, followed by rave reviews for his mysterious Greek-American tour guide in The Two Faces Of January – and let’s not forget the ill-fated ex-con he played in Drive – we can’t imagine the Academy have failed to notice Isaac’s chameleonic ability at role taking.
 
And this is no more apparent than in A Most Violent Year, the upcoming thriller which pairs Isaac alongside Jessica Chastain as a young couple struggling for the American dream in 1980s New York, where crime in the city is at an all-time high and where his immigrant businessman may or may not be a connected guy.
 
Though judging by the trailer below, if anyone’s doing dirty work, then it’s Chastain, looking on fine form as the hothead trouser-wearing spouse on a collision course with authorities as dark forces threaten to plunge their family into chaos – and, naturally, having been given the nod for The Help and Zero Dark Thirty of late, she’s no stranger to the big awards-worthy performances, 
 
And you might also notice the addition of Albert Brooks, who many still believe should have picked up an Academy Award himself thanks to that menacing supporting role in Drive.
 
Soulful, stylish, violent (obviously), this could signal a very good year for more than a few people.
 
A Most Violent Year is out in cinemas from 23 January
