You'll Be Able to Stream Hustlers Soon
Trust us, you're not ready for J.Lo.
(SPOT.ph) Have you ever wanted to see the classic Robin Hood tale played out with savvy strippers and Wall Street wolves? Yes, well that was a confusing summary of the 2019 blockbuster hit Hustlers—which, if for some reason you haven't seen yet, you can catch when it starts streaming on HBO GO on September 26!
This hard-hitting tale features Constance Wu and Jennifer Lopez as two strippers scraping by in the gritty side of New York city as newbie Destiny and veteran Ramona, respectively. The two form a sisterhood with other girls in their club—and they begin to steal from their clients, racking up huge bills on their credit cards while the stock traders and CEOs are too busy having fun to notice. Set against the backdrop of the global financial crisis in 2007 to 2008, this movie is based on a true story of four women and one man who led a similar ploy and were eventually charged in 2014.
Hustlers featured an ensemble cast including Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, and Lili Reinhart, with singers Lizzo and Cardi B to round it out. The story of the streetsmart strippers was an instant hit at the box office and is arguably one of J.Lo's biggest movies to date. Come for J.Lo's epic pole dancing scene, stay for the badass story of women making the system their bitch.
