/// ‘Hustle’ Ups Ante for Charles Roven, David O. Russell
David O. Russell’s latest film, “American Hustle,” is very loosely based on the Abscam sting operation of the late ’70s/early ’80s that resulted in the conviction of several congressmen and a New Jersey state senator, among others, on bribery charges. But try drawing parallels to the actual events and the producers will hedge their bets every time.
