Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain star in this tough, brilliantly crafted New York crime drama from acclaimed director J. C. Chandor (Margin Call). Set in 1981 – one of the most crime-ridden years in the city’s history – Isaac plays Abel Morales, an immigrant trying to expand his business and in doing so, forced to navigate the overwhelming violence and corruption of the world he’s operating in. Bolstered by his steely wife (Chastain), he comes under fire from an equally ambitious young district attorney (David Oyelowo). Garnering superb performances from Isaac, Chastain and Oyelowo, Chandor sets them against an authentically recreated 1980s world; beautifully shot, and full of danger.

“Rigorous, resourceful and as smart as a whip” **** Xan Brooks, The Guardian
