O.Russell's film, which has already won awards from the New York Critics Circle, follows a 1970s con artist, Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), and his British lover, Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams), as they are forced to work with FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper), who pushes them into the dangerous and attractive world of the Mafia and money to go with it. Irving's wife (Jennifer Lawrence) jeopardises the whole operation and could cause the lives of others to come crashing down.

Cooper and Lawrence re-team from previously working with each other in 'Silver Linings Playbook', in which Lawrence won an Academy Award. Although a late release into the award season, 'American Hustle' is already garnering some considerable Oscar buzz.

But first who will be victorious at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards on Jan 16th 2014?
