Based on a 2015 New York Magazine article comes a thrilling crime caper that will get you cheering for its antiheroes as they haul in mountains of ill-gotten cash. Hustlers, directed by Lorene Scafaria breaks down the real-life tale of strippers who coaxed wealthy men into expensive nights on the town. Definitely an interesting watch, we strongly believe it’s something you don’t want to miss. To bring you a brief preview of the film here’s putting out everything we were able to find out for you.
Addressing an issue
Featuring top shelf squad of Jennifer Lopez, Cardi B, Constance Wu, Lily Reinhart, Keke Palmer and Lizzo, director Lorene Scafaria senses that her newest creation that is yet to hit theatres will thrive to its greatest potential. Based on an article published in the New York Magazine article a few years ago, Hustlers takes you into the life of strippers as they cajole wealthy men into including them in over the top nights around the town. Soon after, plying the men with a cocktail of drugs and alcohol, the girls get the targets to max out their credit cards and hand over their personal information.
Each in their role
The ageless Lopez owns the film as Ramona, the smooth-talking ringleader who enlists the troop of disaffected dancers while Wu, fresh off her star-making performance in Crazy Rich Asians, serves as the film’s emotional core as Dorothy, who also sets out as the film’s narrator as she recounts the epic antics to the New York Magazine reporter.
One with something to say
Not only does Hustlers have a fun-filled appeal to its plot but the film also tags a cynically disingenuous moral message at the end. Like a flashier, somehow more grounded version of last year’s Ocean’s 8, Hustlers is a winning crime world thrill ride that has you giggling and grinning through the giddy gold rush.
