Di­rec­tor David o. rus­sell mar­shals an im­pres­sive cast – chris­tian Bale, Bradley cooper, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence and Jeremy ren­ner – in this film which has been scoop­ing up nom­i­na­tions and awards. it re­ceived 10 os­car nom­i­na­tions, dom­i­nat­ing in all six main cat­e­gories which are best pic­ture, best ac­tor (Bale), best ac­tress (Adams), best sup­port­ing ac­tor (cooper), best sup­port­ing ac­tress (Lawrence) and best di­rec­tor (rus­sell). ow­ing to its ac­claim, there will be a limited the­atri­cal re­lease of the film in Malaysia from Feb 27.

Amer­i­can Hus­tle re­volves around irv­ing rosen­feld, a con­man who is a lit­tle con­cerned with his re­ced­ing hair­line but is cocky and smart enough to pull off his thiev­ing schemes in broad day­light. His mis­tress Syd­ney is also his part­ner in crime and just as adept at the game. their vic­tims never know what hit them, un­til one mark hap­pens to be an FBi agent, richie Di­Maso (who has his own ob­ses­sion with his hair). richie then uses the cou­ple to pull off a con that he hopes will nab some dirty politi­cians.

The art of the con: Irv­ing rosen­feld (Chris­tian bale) lays out an ar­gu­ment about fake art­work and its worth to richie di­Maso (bradley Cooper, left) in amer­i­can Hus­tle.
