The movie "American Hustles" is based on this scandal. Director David O. Russel and co-screenwriter Eric Singer enlaced a slick comedy about a conman and his partner who in cooperation with a FBI agent are trying to convict top politicians (imdb). The flick blends capers with politics into a delicious & sly melange.
"American Hustles" lives from its phenomenal cast. There are at least 4 outstanding actors: Watching Christian Bale as a crafty con artist is a lot of fun, but he easily gets outplayed by the superb Amy Adams as his swell partner in crime and the amazingly alterable Jennifer Lawrence, as the conman´s unstable & but glib wive. With Bradley Cooper, as a crafty FBI agent, they worked together and shaped a perfect circle of scheming.
American Hustles" proves that big Hollywood cinema can be intelligent and highly entertaining as well.
