A supernatural mystery that
combines romance, politics and magic, The Illusionist is the latest film
from the producers of the Oscar winners Crash and Sideways. The film
stars Academy Award nominees Edward Norton and Paul Giamatti as two men
pitted against each other in a battle of wits: Norton as mysterious stage
magician Eisenheim, and Giamatti as Vienna's shrewd Chief Inspector Uhl, with
Jessica Biel sharing the screen as the beautiful Sophie von Teschen.
When word of Eisenheim's astounding illusions reaches the powerful and
pragmatic Crown Prince Leopold (Rufus Sewell), the ruler attends one of the
magician's shows in order to debunk Eisenheim during the performance. But when
the Prince's intended, Sophie von Teschen, assists the magician onstage,
Eisenheim and Sophie recognize each other from their childhoods—and a dormant
love affair is rekindled. As the clandestine romance continues, Uhl is charged
by Leopold to intensify his efforts to expose Eisenheim, even while the magician
gains a devoted and vocal public following. With Uhl doggedly searching for the
reasons and the man behind the trickery, Eisenheim prepares to execute his
greatest illusion yet.
The Illusionist is written and directed by Neil Burger, and features
top-notch production values, including a haunting score by master contemporary
composer Philip Glass.
