Unlike the "Silver Linings'" small, personal storyline, "American Hustle" fictionalizes the late 1970s Abscam sting, in which two con men work with an FBI agent to uncover high-level political corruption. Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner and Amy Adams round out the main cast, while Robert DeNiro and Louis C.K. show up for smaller roles.
"American Hustle" hits theaters this December.
