In 1900s Vienna, mesmeric entertainer Eisenheim’s magical abilities are wowing the crowds, with an act that ranges from mere tricks to an apparent capacity to raise the dead. However, he has also long been in love with Duchess Sophie von Teschen, which puts him in dangerous competition with the violent, scheming Crown Prince Leopold, who jumps at the opportunity to have the magician arrested on grounds of necromancy. Written and directed by Neil Burger and starring Edward Norton, Jessica Biel, Paul Giamatti and Rufus Sewell, this 2006 production was also highly acclaimed for its score and cinematography.
