Directed by: David O. Russell
Staring: Jennifer Lawrence, Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner
A fictional film set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock our nation, American Hustle tells the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that's as dangerous as it is enchanting. Jeremy Renner is Carmine Polito, thepassionate, volatile, New Jersey political operator caught between the con-artists and Feds. Irving's unpredictable wife Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence) could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down. Like David O. Russell's previous films, American Hustle defies genre, hinging on raw emotion, and life and death stakes.
This film was amazingly clever, witty and engaging from beginning to end. I LOVED every disco second of it. It's the American dream, minus the whole con-artist scheming thing. From the cloths, acting, set design, music, there were just so many awesome aspects to this movie!
How could you not love all this awesome hair?
And these low cut dresses? Yeow!
This is one to see! So much comedy, intermixed with a crime drama that will have you strapped in for the ride! Go see this one and watch for it, and all the cast, to be a big winner in the upcoming Golden Globes.
