A first full trailer of "American Hustle" has been released for viewing pleasure. It shows how everyone plays their part and runs their own game. Some hustle for respect, some hustle for love, others hustle for truth, but they all have one thing in common, that is hustling to survive.
For beautiful mother Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence) who is married to con man Irving (Christian Bale), life is just ridiculous. "You know I'd never say anything bad about your father in front of you but your father is a sick son of a b***h," so she says to her young son while taking a drag on her cigarette.
Despite her not-so-glowing comment, Irving is quite a charmer. He gives some decent advice to Mayor Carmine (Jeremy Renner), "I believe you should treat people the way you wanna be treated. Also, always take a favor over money." With his confident bravado, he lures another beauty Sydney (Amy Adams).
Irving, along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney, is forced to work for FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). The Mayor is caught between them as they are entangled in a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia, and Rosalyn could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down.
Coming from "Silver Linings Playbook" director David O. Russell, the drama story will be widely released Stateside this coming Christmas. It is also supported by the likes of Robert De Niro, Louis C.K. and Michael Pena.
