TORONTO (AP) — The movie “Hustlers” is, in itself, a hustle.
It looks like a flashy, glamorous movie about strippers — all sparkle and skin and high-heels. And it is that. But behind the fleshy, dazzling surface of “Hustlers” is an empowering feminist tale about a sisterhood of women who turn the tables on a male-controlled industry
And the film is winning Jennifer Lopez some of the best reviews of her career. Lopez plays Ramona, a veteran New York stripper who organizes a scam to drug Wall Street guys and max out their credit cards. It’s loosely based on a true story.
“Hustlers” opens in theaters this week.
