We’ve seen a couple of on-set snaps of Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain in their just-wrapped crime drama “A Most Violent Year,” but this week’s Entertainment Weekly has the first official stills from the film (scans via murtadae on Tumblr), as well as some plot and character details.
The year is 1981 and Isaac and Chastain play married couple Abel and Anna. He’s a “principled businessman” but finds himself needing to get his hands a little dirty as his gas company runs up against the criminal underworld. Luckily, Chastain’s Anna is no demure housewife and may just do what needs to be done when her husband gets cold feet. “There are certain things Abel won’t do, so she thinks maybe she has to,” Chastain tells EW of her character.
The highly anticipated JC Chandor drama will be released sometime this fall and we can’t wait. See the first stills below. We’ll replace with better versions if we find them.
