The Illusionist (4 stars)

The Illusionist image“Set in early 1900s Vienna, Neil Burger‘s romantic thriller centers on illusionist extraordinaire Eisenheim (Edward Norton), who falls for an aristocrat (Jessica Biel) well above his social standing. When she becomes engaged to Crown Prince Leopold (Rufus Sewell), the master magician employs his powers to win her love. His daring scheme creates tumult within the monarchy and ignites the suspicion of Chief Inspector Uhl (Paul Giamatti).”

Geoff’s Comments: This was a very well paced drama, with great acting and story telling. I was surprised on numerous levels.
