Hustlers, the new movie from writer-director Lorene Scafaria, tells the rags-to-riches-to-prison story of four New York City strippers.
Faced with the havoc wreaked by the 2008 recession on the sex industry, the winsome foursome decides to take matters into their own hands in a modern, quasi-feminist retelling of the classic “steal from the rich” tale. Except instead of giving to the poor, these women are looking only to give to themselves.
The crew’s fearless leaders are single mother and veteran dancer Ramona Vega, played by an incandescent Jennifer Lopez, and Destiny (Constance Wu), who tells their story to journalist Elizabeth (Julia Stiles). With this hit crime comedy set to hit theaters in a matter of days, you can take a look into the real truth behind this silver screen story in the video below.
