13th April 2014

From David O. Russell, the critically acclaimed director of 'The Fighter' and the Academy Award-winning film 'Silver Linings Playbook', this modern day classic opens with the line "some of this actually happened"... and what follows is an unbelievably over-the-top tale of desire, deceit, cons, corruption, excess and sexual tension - all set in the big-haired, provocatively dressed 70s.

Hailed by critics, loved by audiences, and lauded with three Golden Globe Award wins, three BAFTA Award wins and 10 Academy Award nominations, 'American Hustle' pits a superb ensemble cast against each other for the ultimate high stakes racket.

Christian Bale ('The Dark Knight' Trilogy) is the scheming yet loveable con artist with a comb-over. Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence ('The Hunger Games: Catching Fire') is his shrewd, vindictive wife with a killer putdown. Bradley Cooper ('The Place Beyond The Pines') is the slick, ambitious and fast-talking FBI agent. Amy Adams ('The Master') is the whip-smart former stripper with a plunging neckline, and Jeremy Renner ('The Avengers') is the corrupt mayor with mob connections.
