MUMBAI: The cast of David O. Russell’s fictional movie based on the 1970s Abscam scandal will be feted 4 January during an Awards Gala at the  Palm Springs International Film Festival.

The Ensemble Performance Award celebrates the film’s cast, which includes Amy Adams, Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Jeremy Renner, Louis C.K., Michael Pena and Alessandro Nivola.

“David O. Russell has created a viscerally powerful film,” said PSIFF chairman Harold Matzner. “American Hustle grabs you from the start and is populated by a group of eminently believable characters as brought to life by this brilliant cast.” The festival’s 25th edition runs January 3-13.
