Earlier today the New York Film Critics Circle announced their 2013 honorees and David O. Russell’s AMERICAN HUSTLE won Best Picture, Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress for Jennifer Lawrence. The film opens wide on December 18 but you can be among the first to see the film on December 10 at the Royal or NoHo. We’re big fans of Mr. Russell’s from Flirting with Disaster to I [Heart] Huckabees to The Fighter and Silver Linings Playbook and his latest is just as fabulously entertaining as his earlier movies.
Here’s a synopsis: A fictional film set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock our nation, AMERICAN HUSTLE tells the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). Like David O. Russell’s previous films, AMERICAN HUSTLE defies genre, hinging on raw emotion, and life and death stakes. Jennifer Lawrence co-stars.
Our AMERICAN HUSTLE at our Royal and NoHo 7 theaters on Tuesday, December 10 are part of the New York Film Critics Series, and will feature a pre-recorded Q&A with the filmmaker moderated by More Magazine film critic Allison Bailes.
