Chastain stars alongside Oscar Isaac ("Inside Llewyn Davis") as the heads of an oil business who get caught up in the New York City criminal underworld. (More on Chastain's most busy year here.)

Also starring are David Oyelowo ("Middle of Nowhere"), Albert Brooks ("Drive"), Elyes Gabel ("World War Z") and Catalina Sandino Marino ("The Bridge"), while Christopher Abbott (once Charlie on "Girls") and Peter Gerety ("Inside Man") have been added to the cast with undisclosed roles.

Here's the official synopsis:

"A Most Violent Year" is a thriller set in New York City during the winter of 1981, statistically one of the most violent years in the city’s history. The film follows the lives of an immigrant and his family trying to expand their business and capitalize on opportunities as the rampant violence, decay, and corruption of the day drag them in and threaten to destroy all they have built.
