Two con artists are forced to help the FBI entrap a corrupt politician.
Con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale) and his seductive partner, Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams), are forced to work for wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper), who pushes them into a world of New Jersey powerbrokers and mafia. Carmine Polito (Jeremy Renner) is an overzealous, hot-tempered political operator caught between the con artists and the Feds. Irving's volatile wife, Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence), could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down. This Academy Award-winning black comedy crime film was inspired by the FBI ABSCAM operation of the late 1970s and early 1980s.
