American Hustle is set in the swanky 70′s during the time of the infamous Abscam scandals. Mainly the FBI bringing down corrupt senators and other politicians. Irving and Sydney are two scam artists that fall in love with each other. Soon their impeccable scamming skills are recruited by the FBI lead by Richie. As Richie uses the Irving and Sydney to lure out the most corrupted, his rabbit hole gets darker and more twisted. Not to mention Irving’s wife Roslyn could ruin the whole investigation due to her unpredictable nature.
