The Illusionist

The Illusionist

dir. Neil Burger (2006)


Superbly acted by Jessica Biel (Duchess von Teschen), Ed Norton (the magician Eisenheim), Rufus Sewell (Crown Prince Leopold) and Paul Giamatti (Chief Inspector Uhl), The Illusionist makes magic from the constant, conflicting pulls of love, class, power and duty in Austro-Hungarian Vienna.
