USA | 2013 | 129 Minutes | David O. Russell

December 19, 2013 - February 6, 2014

10 Oscar noms including Best Picture, Actor, Actress, and Supporting Actor and Actress! Director David O. Russell presents a story based loosely around a scandalous 1970s sting operation that features an award-winning cast that includes Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, and Jennifer Lawrence.

Part crime thriller, part period piece, and part screwball comedy, director David O. Ressell's newest film is garnering raves as one of the year's best films. Brilliant con artist Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale) and his cunning and seductive partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) are pushed by an unconventional FBI agent (Bradley Cooper) into the domain of New Jersey powerbrokers and mafia families – a world that proves to be both dangerous and enchanting.

The film also features Jeremy Renner as Carmine Polito, the passionate, volatile, New Jersey political operator caught between the con-artists and Feds; and Jennifer Lawrence in an acclaimed performance as Irving's unpredictable wife–who could be the that brings the entire world crashing down on them. 

New York Film Critics Circle Winner: Best Picture, Best Screenplay, Best Supporting Actress (Jennifer Lawrence)

7 Golden Globe Nominations: Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Actor (Christian Bale), Best Actress (Amy Adams), Best Supporting Actor (Bradley Cooper), Best Supporting Actress (Jennifer Lawrence)

"It's a film of jaw-dropping virtuosity and pleasure, one that leaves you revved, enthralled, tickled, moved, and amazed." - Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

"American Hustle offers so many easy pleasures that people may not think of it as a work of art, but it is. In the world that Russell has created, if you don't come to play you're not fully alive." - David Denby, The New Yorker

"A fearless piece of American cinema and more evidence that Russell is really on a roll." - Pete Hammond, Deadline

"Reveling in its '70s milieu and in the eternal abrasion of sexy women and covetous men, American Hustle is an urban eruption of flat-out fun - the sharpest, most exhilarating comedy in years." - Richard Corliss, TIME
