David O. Russell is a hell of a talented storyteller. The guy just makes great movies, and his latest film American Hustle looks amazing. This new trailer gives us more of a sense of the story and the characters. The 1970s set film stars Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, and Jennifer Lawrence. Here's the synopsis:
Brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld, who along with his equally cunning British partner and lover Sydney Prosser, is forced to work for wild, unhinged FBI agent Richie DiMaso. DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that’s as dangerous as it is enchanting. Carmen Polito, the passionate, volatile, New Jersey political operator is caught between the con-artists and Feds. Irving’s unpredictable wife Rosalyn could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down.
The movie gets a limited release on December 13th, and then eventually goes wide.
