Set Design Secrets From ‘American Hustle’
Directed by David O. Russell, American Hustle is a crime comedy-drama loosely based on the fascinating FBI ABSCAM operation of the late 1970s and early '80s. To create the look of the film, Russell turned to Judy Becker, his longtime collaborator who also worked with him on The Fighter and Silver Linings Playbook. See how Becker created the look of two of the film’s most notable sets: the sleek and sophisticated apartment of Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams), and the over-the-top ranch house of Rosalyn Rosenfeld (Jennifer Lawrence).
