American Hustle

Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale) dabbles in forgery and loan-sharking, but when he falls for fellow grifter Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams), things change in a big way. Caught red-handed by FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper), Irv and Sydney are forced to work under cover as part of DiMaso's sting operation to nail a New Jersey mayor (Jeremy Renner). Meanwhile, Irv's jealous wife (Jennifer Lawrence) may be the one to bring everyone's world crashing down. Based on the 1970s Abscam case.

12/19/13 - OC Register - By MICHAEL SRAGOW, ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER

If you used the word “hustle” in the period when this caper movie is set – the “Saturday Night Fever” ’70s – you would have been referring to a dance, not a con. Director David O. Russell knows a con is a dance that, like the Hustle, can be performed by two people, multiple partners, or a whole line of dancers. His film offers the intense and elating pleasure of watching a top-notch ensemble pull off intricate moves with gusto and spontaneity to a sizzling 1970s soundtrack. It’s as if they’re making it up as they go-go.
