Hustlers - Trailer
Director Wayne KramerYear 2014Genre(s) Action, Adventure
The pawn shop is the last resort for most broke people; the place where the impoverished and the desperate sell off their most prized valuables in exchange for an obscenely disproportionate amount of money. In 'Hustlers', it's where three dramatic stories begin; first, a pair of newlyweds find themselves in the shop where, as fate would have it, the groom finds the ring of his first wife who has been missing for some time. While he decides to seek out her kidnapper, a pair of small time criminals are concocting a plan to rob their meth dealer - though their armed robbery plan is inhibited when one of them pawns his shotgun. Meanwhile, one serious-minded Elvis Presley impersonator wishes to pawn his alleged gold Elvis memorabilia as he moves into the town hoping to land a new job in a fairground.
'Hustlers' is a crime comedy set in America's Deep South originally entitled 'Pawn Shop Chronicles'. Directed by Wayne Kramer ('Crossing Over', 'Running Scared', 'The Cooler') and written by Adam Minarovich ('Chop', 'Exhibit A-7', 'Buy Sell Kill: A Flea Market Story'), the movie marks one of actor Paul Walker's final films before his untimely passing in November 2013. The film is out now on DVD.
