Oscar-Winning Hulu Plus Movies: The Usual Suspects
Long before he became sneaky politician Frank Underwood, Kevin Spacey took home an Academy Award for his performance in The Usual Suspects.
Spacey plays Verbal Kint, a con man and the only survivor of a criminal assault that left dozens of men dead, millions of dollars in drug money laying around, and one cargo freighter in flames. The movie follows Kint’s account of the weeks leading up to the attack, and how five wrongfully accused criminals ended up getting involved. The result is a classic crime film, and one of the best Hulu Plus movies out there.
If you liked the intricate plot of American Hustle, you’ll enjoy the weaving, crime-based narrative of The Usual Suspects. And if you like Spacey’s performance in House of Cards, his award-winning role in this film is not to be missed.
