Synopsis

Unlock the mysteries of the year's most spellbinding film from the producers of Crash and Sideways! Oscar® nominees Paul Giamatti and Edward Norton lead an all-star cast in this "stunning" film (USA Today) that conjures an exhilarating blend of suspense, romance and mind-bending twists. The acclaimed illusionist Eisenheim (Norton) has not only captured the imaginations of all of Vienna, but also the interest of the ambitious Crown Prince Leopold (Rufus Sewell). But when Leopold's new fiancée (Jessica Biel) rekindles a childhood fascination with Eisenheim, the Prince's interest evolves into obsession...and suddenly the city's Chief Inspector (Giamatti) finds himself investigating a shocking crime. But even as the Inspector engages him in a dramatic challenge of wills, Eisenheim prepares for his most impressive illusion yet in this "mesmerizing" (Entertainment Weekly) and "beautifully acted" (Good Morning America) film that "teases you until the very end!" (The New York Times).

Reviews

Bob Mondello NPR.org | October 18, 2008

The line between truth and illusion is blurred so persuasively that for a moment or two, you may even believe that a romantic costume drama could stand up to all those special-effects blockbusters in the dog days of summer.

Stanley Kauffmann The New Republic | October 26, 2006

What (director Neil) Burger and his colleagues have done is to entrance us with a richly acted, beautifully produced story.

Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer | September 01, 2006

Conjures up a world of mystery, romance and suspense.

Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel | September 01, 2006

Norton is a magnetic and mysterious center to the piece, boring his eyes through the screen with his intensity.

Robert Denerstein Denver Rocky Mountain News | September 01, 2006

The story may be less than credible, but the performances are mostly good, and Giamatti makes an especially strong showing.

Michael Booth Denver Post | September 01, 2006

A pleasant diversion serious enough to offer a little soul.

Terry Lawson Detroit Free Press | August 25, 2006

Underneath its hocus-pocus is a compelling story, very well told.
