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.

He is living with his Philadelphia Eagles-obsessed parents (Robert De Niro and Jacki Weaver) when the mysterious Tiffany (Golden Globe winner Jennifer Lawrence) enters his life.

LIKE CRAZY
2011, Paramount Vantage, 90 min, USA, Dir: Drake Doremus

Aspiring furniture designer Jacob (Anton Yelchin) and poetry-writing British exchange student Anna (Felicity Jones) meet at a Los Angeles university and, after a few blushingly sincere flirtations and a date, become a couple. When Anna overstays her Visa tenure in the country, and is barred from entry back into the U.S. after returning home from a family visit in the U.K., the young lovers find themselves suddenly thrown into a long-distance, cross-continental relationship, and navigating all the heart-aching complications that go along with it. With Jennifer Lawrence. The Grand Jury Prize winner at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. “An exquisite, beautifully acted gem of a film.” -Variety
