Hair raising American Hustle character one sheets arrive online

We've know since the first trailer emerged last month that the film features some truly shocking vintage '80s getup. Now Columbia Pictures have just released their latest character one sheets for David O. Russell’s (Silver Linings Playbook) American Hustle, giving us a better look at the characters and their spectacular hair.

A loosely truth-based tale of an FBI sting operation that took down some high-profile US government types, American Hustle was originally called American Bullshit when it was at number eight on 2010's Black List list of the best unproduced screenplays.

The film finds Christian Bale as Irving Rosenfeld, a Bronx-raised con man who raises the suspicion of driven FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper).

Under threat of prison, DiMaso forces Rosenfeld and his lover/accomplice Sydney (Amy Adams) to work up the Abscam sting, which saw a US senator and five congressmen convicted on corruption charges. "That era was very much like our era now," says Russell. "The economy was not in a good place and people had to struggle to figure out how to reinvent themselves."

American Hustle will arrive in US cinemas on 25 December before hopping across the pond to launch here on Boxing Day.
