David O. Russell’s “American Hustle” has apparently already begun its awards collecting ways. From what I read on the Interwebs, some awards show types over at Gotham (whatever that is) are giving the movie all the Gothamites it can hold. (I think those are hamburgers, by the way.) Which is a no-brainer. I mean, you don’t put Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, and Christian Bale in a period movie and expect it not to rock. (Okay, maybe not Bradley Cooper.)
Anyhoo. Check out 7 new images from “American Hustle”. Do the hustle, as they say.
A fictional film set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock the States, 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.
Starring Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Jennifer Lawrence.
