A fictional film set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock our nation, American Hustle is the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld, who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser, is forced to work for wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso.

Blue Jasmine by Woody Allen( Visual )
20 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,999 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Nachdem ihr Mann wegen windiger Finanzgeschäfte verhaftet wurde und im Gefängnis Selbstmord beging, sucht eine Frau aus der New Yorker High Society Zuflucht bei ihrer Schwester im Arbeitermilieu von San Francisco. Bald brechen alte Konflikte um Werte und Lebensstile aus, weil sie die neuen Verhältnisse als "working class", niveaulos und ärmlich empfindet. Fulminant besetzte Tragikomödie, in der die vorzügliche Hauptdarstellerin den Raum nutzt, um den Genuss und den Kater, die Selbsttäuschung und die Euphorie auszuspielen. Hinter diesem Porträt einer Frau, die der Finanzcrash weder von ihrer Oberflächlichkeit noch von übersteigerten Ansprüchen kurieren konnte, offenbart sich die Abrechnung mit einer Gesellschaftsschicht."

This untraditional arrangement can be difficult at times, as Louie is never content with the role of caregiver (despite having no skills or ambition to offer his family or society), and Kim can never quite let go of controlling, supervising and criticizing Louie's shoddy stay-at-home work.
