When Jennifer Lopez makes an entrance in Hustlers, boy does she make an entrance – contorting her body around a stripper’s pole like a candy-snake wrapped around a drinking-straw. And without any crass insinuations, it is a sight to behold.
Based on a New York Magazine article, the story follows Destiny (Constance Wu), a young woman who turns to stripping to makes ends meet, with the help of a club professional, Ramona (Lopez). When the GFC hits America and the women wind up out of work, Ramona hatches a scheme to fleece wealthy Wall Street businessmen, and before long the girls are running a highly profitable operation. A slick and energetic drama anchored by unflinching performances, Hustlers plays like a fusion of Magic Mike, Oceans 8 and Molly’s Game.
