“In one of the best works of her career, (JLo) sighs and reflects that America is a strip club; some people are the ones who throw money, and the rest are the dancers,” writes Alison Cohen de Hustlers is based on a true story, adapted from a New York Magazine article about strippers who drugged their millionaire clients to charge their credit cards and survive the financial crisis of 2008.
An outstanding performance by Jennifer Lopez that many here at the Toronto International Film Festival feel that she is worthy of awards. “It is a film about the work of women, and the economy, which does not forgive the crimes of its protagonists, nor those of the people they took advantage of.”
Jennifer Lopez has starred, for example, The Wedding Planner (2001) and Plan B (2010). In addition to the years she has dedicated to music, however, in films such as Selena (1997) and Out of Sight (1998), she has already shown the talent that media critics such as The Hollywood Reporter points out as valuable to Oscar.
Best actress in the next edition of the Oscars, Jennifer Lopez would be the fifth Latina, in history, nominated for the highest Academy Award.
