“I love my wife. But I will never be her. I am gay. That’s who I am, and that’s the truth.”
That’s who actor Paul Rudd, played by Adam Driver in American Hustle, says in the film’s climactic scene. As the man who, despite many, many years of being, well, not even, a person, says “I love my wife. But I will never be her,” the film manages to break the heart of an audience for whom the notion of two heterosexual lovers is inarguable.
The trailer below features just such a couple, although of course neither of them is actually named “Adam” and neither of them is physically “married,” in either real-life or in the trailer. They are not gay, and in the film, they do not make out; on the contrary, they are just friends.
This is the truth behind the movie: A couple who have gotten married, are now in love, but there’s never been anything else between them. Their “relationship” is based off of a dream where they go to a gay nightclub that is “gay friendly” (whatever that means), and then after a nightcap (a gay “drinking game”) both kiss. After the second kiss they share an embrace, before falling out of the bed and continuing their night together in bed.
In the actual movie they don’t kiss. They kiss in the bathroom, and when they go to bed, not only do they kiss again — as a mutual gesture of bonding over friendship — but neither of them gets any sleep — meaning they’re both lying on top of each other for hours before the “relationship” is declared complete.

American Hustle is made for audiences of all ages. It’s about a guy, and not really about him at all. It might be a good movie for young people, but it’s not really aimed for adults. It’s directed for young actors, and is also about relationships between two young guys. If that’s the best you can say of the film
