Summary: The story of a con artist and his partner in crime, forced to work with a federal agent to turn the tables on other cons, mobsters, and politicians – namely, the volatile mayor of impoverished Camden, New Jersey.
Early Word: The film hasn’t been seen, but it delivered a pretty juicy trailer last week. David O. Russell has scored plenty of Oscar nominations for his last two films “Silver Linings Playbook” and “The Fighter.” This film looks more tailored to the Academy offering up itself in the technical categories as well as the acting categories. Now to see if it’s supposed to be any good.
