Personal Quote:

[on the character of Abel Morales] What I love is Abel's mission was that he believes he's fulfilling his destiny, the American destiny. It's like Abel believes that he is destined for greatness and that he is better than other people. See more »

Trivia:

By 2006, he had written what he hoped would be his debut feature. An Icelandic investor had agreed to finance the project, which seemed too good to be true until the Icelandic financial crisis bit and the money suddenly vanished. Chandor was a week away from filming and had already spent $200,000. See more »
