A lean, fierce take on the nature of female empowerment in an inherently corrupted world.
This is a deeply feminist film, one where men are given less screen time than the cameoing Cardi B and Lizzo.
Riotously told and enthusiastically performed, Hustlers is hugely entertaining. Edgy, provocative and full of ker-ching.
At heart Hustlers is a bit retro, both a callback to the ditzy gold-diggers of the 1930s and a high-energy, montage-heavy crime caper in the Scorsese vein, as these likeable good-gals turn the tables on Wall Street's most lascivious wolves.
Sight and Sound
A Best Actress Oscar nomination for Jennifer Lopez? You better believe it. Lopez is that dazzling, that deep, that electrifying. This you don't want to miss.
A giddily entertaining homage to female power that illuminates bold ambition in its stars and director alike, Hustlers is the kind of era-defining film that Hollywood didn't know it needed.
