Why do I want to go see AMERICAN HUSTLE this holiday season? The cast. Director David O. Russell has already done excellent work with Amy Adams and Christian Bale in *THE FIGHTER and Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper in *SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK.
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, the passionate, 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. (Columbia Pictures)
AMERICAN HUSTLE is directed by David O. Russell; written by Eric Warren Singer and David O. Russell; and produced by Charles Roven, Richard Suckle, Megan Ellison, and Jonathan Gordon. Opens in theaters everywhere December 20th. Rated R for pervasive language, some sexual content and brief violence.
