American Hustle, as I'm sure you are well aware of by now, is a great movie. After seeing the film, it is pretty evident why the film was nominated for Academy Awards in various facets of cinema. The film's writing is superb, the acting is an all-star cast (Christian Bale is phenomenal in this film), and of course, the scenery and wardrobes are fantastic. Really, the clothing and styling in the film is really, really, fantastic. Great job by the stylists.
There really isn't anything that can be said that hasn't already. American Hustle is a superb film. Catch it when you can.
