4 months ago, Malaysia made international headlines for banning “Hustlers” as it was deemed “unsuitable for public screening”.
It appears that “Hustlers” is now being advertised with a new titled called “The Wall Street Girls” and is currently set for local release on 6th February 2020.
“Hustlers” or “The Wall Street Girls” can be found under the Coming Soon section in the TGV Cinemas website and app. Naturally, we’re wondering the same thing as Lowyat. Has the controversial film based on a true story by Jessica Pressler’s New York Magazine article titled, “The Hustlers at Scores”, finally receive the green light to screen locally?
Seeing as how the HD version is already available online, does anybody still care?
The question is still up in the air as nothing has been officially finalised yet. Having said that, even if the ban has been lifted, all the “inappropriate” scenes in “The Wall Street Girls” will still be heavily censored here.
