Linda Ge’s Up and Comers just posted the scans from EW’s preview with the first look at Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain in A Most Violent Year.
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.
