THE ILLUSIONIST

THE ILLUSIONIST

Oscar® nominees* Paul Giamatti (Sideways) and Edward Norton (Fight Club) lead an all-star cast that includes Jessica Biel (Next), Rufus Sewell (Dark City), Eddie Marsan (Deadpool 2) and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-***) in this ”stunning” film (USA Today) that conjures an exhilarating blend of suspense, romance and mind-bending twists from the Academy Award® Winning** Producers of Crash and the writer / director Neil Burger (The Upside, Divergent). The acclaimed illusionist Eisenheim (Norton) has not only captured the imaginations of all of Vienna, but also the interest of the ambitious Crown Prince Leopold (Sewell). But when Leopold’s new fiancée (Biel) rekindles a childhood fascination with Eisenheim, the Prince’s interest evolves into obsession…and suddenly the city’s Chief Inspector (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 in this ”mesmerizing” (Entertainment Weekly) and ”beautifully acted” (Good Morning America) film that ”teases you until the very end! ” (The New York Times). *Paul Giamatti, 2005, Supporting Actor, Cinderella Man; Edward Norton, 2015, Supporting Actor, Birdman; Edward Norton, 1998, Actor, American History X; Edward Norton, 1996 Supporting Actor, Primal Fear **Cathy Schulman, 2004, Best Picture, Crash; Bob Yari, 2004, Best Picture, Crash
