I’d be shocked if David O. Russell’s “American Hustle” didn’t win a bunch of awards when it’s time to give the hardware out next year. Mind you, not that I particularly care about who Hollywood gives their awards to, but it’s going to be hard to ignore the cast of this one. I mean, damn, the clothes, the hair, the crazy method acting? David O. Russell’s “American Hustle” seems to have it all. Of course, I could be wrong and the movie might suck and all the acting could be terrible, but I somehow doubt that.
Take a gander at the film’s second trailer, due out this December.
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. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, American Hustle defies genre, hinging on raw emotion, and life and death stakes.
Starring Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Jennifer Lawrence.
