American Hustle is a David O. Russell film by Columbia Pictures and AnnaPurna Pictures that tells the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (played by Christian Bale of The Dark Night series), who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (played by Amy Adams of Man of Steel) is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (played by Bradley Cooper of Silver Linings Playbook).
Richie DiMaso pushes them into a world of New Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that’s said to be as dangerous as it is enchanting. Jeremy Renner (The Avengers) is Carmine Polito, the passionate, volatile, New Jersey political operator caught between the con-artists and Feds.
Irving Rosenfeld’s unpredictable wife Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence of Catching Fire) 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.
American Hustle was written by Eric Warren Singer and David O. Russell. It was produced by Charles Roven, Richard Suckle, Megan Ellison, and Jonathan Gordon.
The premier of American Hustle is Friday, December 13th in New York and Los Angeles.
