Spare elegance and poetic simplicity define the latest film by director Alexander Payne (Sideways, The Descendants). Take a black and white road trip with an eccentric father (Bruce Dern) who is convinced he has won a million-dollar sweepstakes, his son who grudgingly agrees to drive him to Nebraska to claim his jackpot, and a cast of supporting characters who will have you laughing through your tears.

American Hustle

(138min/R/2013)

A fictional retelling of the Abscam scandal that shook our nation in the late 70’s/early 80’s, American Hustle tells the story of a brilliant con man (Christian Bale), his cunning mistress (Amy Adams), an offbeat FBI agent (Bradley Cooper), and an unpredictable wife (Jennifer Lawrence) embroiled in a scandal that defies the imagination. Part black comedy, part drama, part tragedy, this genre-defying film will take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions.
