The Illusionist (2006)

Edward Norton stars in this turn-of-the-century fantasy/romance about a magician who falls in love with a woman of high social standing (Jessica Biel). When she becomes engaged to a Viennese prince, our magical lover uses his powers to win her back and bring down the royal house. Paul Giamatti is the chief inspector stuck with the unenviable task of finding out if our illusionist is a charlatan or a conjurer of extraordinary power. The film has an opulent, old-fashioned and deeply mysterious feel to it. A bit rarified for general audiences but just the thing for art house crowds looking for pulpy fun. 110 minutes PG-13.
