American Hustle will probably be one of the major players in this year’s awards race. It’s already been honored by the New York Film Critics Circle for Best Picture and Best Supporting Actress (Jennifer Lawrence), and it recently landed on the American Film Institute’s Top 10 movies of the year. I’ll have my review up on Thursday, but I’ll say this for the film right now: it’s a lot of fun, but in a way that’s different from director David O. Russell‘s previous movie, Silver Linings Playbook. If you’re looking for a good night out, this flick my fit the bill.
I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 30 pairs of passes to the Atlanta screening of American Hustle. Hit the jump to find out how you can see the movie early and for free. The film also stars Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, and Jeremy Renner. American Hustle opens in limited release on December 13th and goes wide on December 20th.

The screening is on Monday, December 16th at 7:00PM at Regal Atlantic Station, so don’t enter if you think you’ll be unavailable. Please note that a pass is not a ticket.

In case you haven’t seen it, here’s the trailer:
And here’s the official synopsis:
A fictional film set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock our nation, American Hustle tells the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that’s as dangerous as it is enchanting. Jeremy Renner is Carmine Polito, the passionate, volatile, New Jersey political operator caught between the con-artists and Feds. Irving’s unpredictable wife Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence) could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, American Hustle defies genre, hinging on raw emotion, and life and death stakes.
