Talk about catching fire! Jennifer Lawrence has once again wowed us with her sizzling self in the hot new movie, American Hustle which is directed by David O Russell. He also happens to have directed Jennifer’s Oscar winning performance in, The Silver Linings Playbook.
The movie American Hustle is an adaptation of real life crime events that involved the FBI, conmen and the Mafia. One of the main characters is played by Christian Bale (Irving Rosenfeld). Rosenfeld was an elite conman who spent the better part of his life buried eye ball deep in crime. Of course it would only be a matter of time till the law caught up with him.
Christian is acting alongside Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Irving’s wife, Rosalyn Rosenfeld who cannot keep a secret even if her life depended on it.
She’s a totally delicious and ditzy creation, sashaying around in Seventies gowns designed by Michael Wilkinson that remind you of the era’s Halston couture, with tarty plunging necklines.
One of the most fantastic scenes in the movie is where Rosalyn (Jennifer), clad in a sultry outfit and Marigold rubber gloves, does the housework while dancing to Wings singing Live And Let Die.
One of the most interesting parts of the movie is when the gang of crooks tries to ship off a butt load of money (which is all in cash) to some bank friendly bank accounts outside of the country. They wind up taping the entire sum to a leggy blonde and transferring it to their banks.
American Hustle features 3 other sizzling performances other than Jennifer and Bale – Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner and Amy Adams.
