Synopsis

Loosely based on the Abscam sting operation during the 1970s, American Hustle follows con artists Irving Rosenfeld (Bale) and Sydney Prosser (Adams), as they team up with FBI agent Richie DiMasso (Cooper) in an effort to take down corrupt U.S. politicians to clear their names. Their primary target is Carmine Polito (Renner), a New Jersey mayor who is hoping to rebuild Atlantic City.
