OSCAR SEASON AT THE AMERICAN CINEMATHEQUE 2014
Sold Out! Nominated for 10 Oscars! David O. Russell In Person!
AMERICAN HUSTLE
As thought-provoking as they are thrilling, David O. Russell's films are rollercoaster rides marked by brilliant ensemble performances, punchy editing and a wicked sense of humor that never obscures their characters' humanity. The writer-director's last two films, THE FIGHTER and SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, were big box office hits and brought Oscars to three of their cast members, and their edgy blend of drama and comedy is on full display in Russell's latest, AMERICAN HUSTLE.

This event is now sold out! There will be a standby line the night of the show. American Cinematheque Members received the first opportunity to purchase tickets before the general public. If you are not a Member and would like to become one to receive future Member benefits, please find more information here.

David O. Russell will appear in person following a screening of AMERICAN HUSTLE which is currently nominated for 10 Academy Awards, including Best Picture. The film, loosely based on the 1970s ABSCAM sting stars Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence.

Discussion following with director David O. Russell.
AMERICAN HUSTLE
2013, Sony Pictures, 138 min, USA, Dir: David O. Russell

Partially inspired by the late 1970s ABSCAM sting, this complex crime story stars Christian Bale and Amy Adams as a pair of con artists caught up in FBI agent Bradley Cooper's attempts to bring down a shifty New Jersey mayor (Jeremy Renner). Arab Sheikhs, mob bosses and missing millions figure into the plan, which will keep audiences guessing right to the end. With Jennifer Lawrence and Louis C.K. "AMERICAN HUSTLE is an urban eruption of flat-out fun - the sharpest, most exhilarating comedy in years. Anyone who says otherwise must be conning you." - Richard Corliss, Time.
