This week at The Harbor Theatre, "American Hustle" (rated R) plays Wednesday and Thursday, Feb. 5 and 6 at 7 p.m., and on Friday, "August: Osage County," (rated R) opens, playing Friday and Saturday, Feb. 7 and 8, Wednesday and Thursday, Feb. 12 and 13 at 7 p.m., also on Sunday, Feb. 9 at 2 p.m.

"American Hustle" from director David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook) tells a story loosely based on the FBI ABSCAM operation of the late 1970s and early '80s. It stars Christian Bale and Amy Adams as two con artists who are forced by an FBI agent (Bradley Cooper) to set up an elaborate sting operation on corrupt politicians, including the mayor of Camden, N.J. (Jeremy Renner). Jennifer Lawrence plays the unpredictable wife of Bale's character.

On Friday "August: Osage County" opens, based on Tracy Letts' Pulitzer Prize-winning play. It tells the dark, hilarious and deeply touching story of the strong-willed women of the Weston family, whose lives have diverged until a family crisis brings them back to the Midwest house they grew up in, and to the dysfunctional woman who raised them.

The ensemble cast is led by Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts, with Ewan McGregor, Chris Cooper, Abigail Breslin, Juliette Lewis, and Benedict Cumberbatch.

Coming Valentine's Day weekend, see "Girl On A Bicycle," (rated R) on Feb. 14 and 15 at 7 p.m., and Sunday, Feb. 16 at 3 p.m.

"Girl On A Bicycle," is a new romantic comedy. Paolo, an Italian tour bus driver living in the "second most beautiful city in the world," Paris, has just summoned up the courage to propose marriage to his flight-attendant girlfriend Greta when, per chance, he encounters the alluring, mysterious Girl on a Bicycle. Infatuation is immediate.

Obsession follows. Unable to get the image of this beauty out of his head, he seeks advice from his best friend, the witty and womanizing Derek. In his bumbling attempt to meet the Girl, French model Cécile, Paolo accidentally runs her over with his bus and his life turns madly chaotic.
