The New York Film Critics Series presents an advance screening of David O. Russell's (THE FIGHTER, SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK) new film AMERICAN HUSTLE at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema.


A fictional film set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock our nation, AMERICAN HUSTLE tells the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that's as dangerous as it is enchanting. Jeremy Renner is Carmine Polito, the passionate, volatile, New Jersey political operator caught between the con-artists and Feds. Irving's unpredictable wife Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence) could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down.


The film we be preceded by a 30-minute preshow featuring Alison Bailes and followed by an exclusive Q&A with David O. Russell lead by Peter Travers of Rolling Stone Magazine.  Alison Bailes is the film critic for More Magazine and a contributing critic for "Ebert Presents at the Movies" on PBS.  She appears on NBC's Today Show as a film critic and industry reporter. Alison also appears regularly on Charlie Rose along with A.O. Scott of the NY times and others. She guest hosts the New York Film Critics Series® and maintains her own film website
