The Illusionist

Acclaimed illusionist Eisenheim (Edward Norton) has not only captured the imaginations of all Vienna, but also the interest of the ambitious Crown Prince Leopold (Rufus Sewell). When Leopold's new fiancee (Jessica Biel) rekindles a childhood fascination with Eisenheim, the Prince's interest evolves into obsession and suddenly the city's Chief Inspector (Paul 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.
