A film by David O. Russell

Cast: Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper

This film is based on the Abscam sting operation of the late 70’s early 80’s In which a con artist helped the FBI Catch members of congress taking bribes. 2 of the characters narrate the story. Irving Rosenfeld who is a con artist meet sydney Prosser a scrappy young woman from Albuquerque with dreams of reinvention herself in style. It is her idea to fake an english accent

and develop a character named Lady Edith, a Londoner with banking connections and in doing so she kick Rosenfeld’s con in high gear. You see Rosenfeld is the owner of a small chain of dry cleaners who makes his real money through fake art and fraudulent loans, in a way she is a perfect woman for him, so they become patners in crime and in love. But hold on Irving is married and has a son. His wife Rosalyn is a force oaf nature She knows just enough to be dangerous which could mess up the all operation you see Sydney and Irving got caught by an FBI agent Richie DiMaso is a hat head under cover in order not to go to jail they have to help The FBI to catch people like them. You see American Hustle is keeping the audience on who’s coning whom. Others character comes into play like Jeremy Renner.as the crooked Camden N.J. Mayor Polito. Also let’s not forget the small role of MY favorite actor Robert De Niro who plays what else a mob hit man Victor Telligio. It is a blast to see all those characters developing. Russell moves the story along just well and keeps us interested, he reveals the flaws of those characters. Overall a wild ride into the Late 70’s Early 80’s.
