In the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock the United States, American Hustle tells the story of con man Irving Rosenfeld, who along with his equally cunning and seductive partner Sydney Prosser is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso.
DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that's as dangerous as it is enchanting. Caught between the con-artists and Feds is Carmine Polito, the passionate, volatile, New Jersey political operator, but it's Irving's unpredictable wife Rosalyn who could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down.

Award-winning crime drama directed by David O. Russell and starring Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper.
