Inspired by true events, and adapted from Jessica Pressler’s viral New York Magazine story “The Hustlers at Scores,” the film tells the story of a group of New York strippers who drugged and robbed a number of Wall Street bankers in the months after the 2008 stock market crash.
The video opens with Jennifer Lopez offering Constance Wu a lesson on how to work a stripper pole like a pro.
“Front hook. Ankle hook. Knee hook,” Lopez says as she wraps an acrylic heel around the pole.
“From here you can do the carousel,” she continues, then swings from the pole.
Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, Trace Lysette and Madeline Brewer are among the members of Lopez’s crew, while Julia Stiles portrays the journalist chasing the story.
This is the synopsis for the film:
Hustlers follows a crew of savvy former strip club employees who band together to turn the tables on their Wall Street clients. The film was inspired by the article published by New York Magazine entitled “The Hustlers at Scores” written by Jessica Pressler.
