On face value, Hustlers delivers one of the most engrossing and entertaining movies of the year – a film peppered with standout performances, an absorbing plot and a near perfect balance of comedy and drama. Based on the viral 2016 New York Magazine article ‘The Hustlers at Scores’, a crew of savvy former strip-club employees band together to turn the tables on their Wall Street clients after the financial crisis of 2008 hits. But as their plan delivers great success, it also delivers a very real threat of getting caught. The ensemble is brilliant including Constance Wu and Lili Reinhart but it’s Jennifer Lopez who hands in a career-best performance.
