American Hustle Synopsis

A fictional film set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock our nation, 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.

I left my showing of American Hustle with a smile on my face and a healthy appreciation for what I’d just seen. I knew, without a doubt, it would go on my yearly Top 10 Movies list. The where was the only question. I initially assumed it would end up about seventh or eighth, but when I sat down to actually make the list, it kept getting bumped up and bumped up

The film has yet to open in several international territories, so $250 million globally is certainly in play. That being said, what effect will this have on the Best Picture race? Hustle is actually not the highest grossing Best Picture nominee. That honor goes to the behemoth Gravity, which was a monster hit, bringing in $698 million worldwide in 3D receipts.

American Hustle Will Con Its Way Onto Blu-ray In March American Hustle Will Con Its Way Onto Blu-ray In March
With ten Oscar nominations and plenty of support from members of the Academy, it’s very possible March 2 will prove to be a wonderful evening for American Hustle. There are few joys like celebrating a Best Picture victory, or at least so I’ve been told, but regardless of whether the film wins or not, the larger month should be a great one because that’s when the film is finally going to be available for purchase.

Every year, the Academy Awards and its voters honor screenwriters old and new by handing out the statue for the Best Original Screenplay, often while employing a lackluster script of its own. While it remains to be seen what kind of material host Ellen DeGeneres will be given, you can bet than the stage direction “This is the part where you dance” will show up more than a few times. Probably in between jokes about Christian Bale’s gut, or his beard, or his hair.

The Screen Actors Guild held their annual award ceremony this evening, and long story short, the voting members really didn’t favor one specific film.
