‘a Most Violent Year,’ But A Film With Restraint : Npr

But his quietly ruthless wife, Anna (Jessica Chastain, carrying a biting line delivery that makes everyone snap to attention), has used her criminal family connections to help the company along. Her presence undermines Abel’s claims to “always take the path which is most right.” The two race to scare up $1.5 million in time to secure a major property deal, and their tension between the desire for respect and the need to get dirty is what gives the film its pulse. The beats of the movie, not to mention the winking title and the time period, make A Most Violent Year feel like it should be another bloody tale about the dark side of American greed. But Chandor is too smart to go down that path.
