NEW TRAILER: "The Illusionist" starring Paul Giamatti and Jessica Biel



JULY 6, 2006

Click here for the trailer

SYNOPSIS
A supernaturally talented magician attempts to undermine the rigid social structure of turn-of-the-century Vienna by using his powers to win the love of his upper-class, childhood sweetheart in director Neil Burger's cinematic adaptation of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Steven Millhauser's short story. Though the ill-fated childhood romance between cabinetmaker's son Eisenheim (Edward Norton) and upper-class Sophie von Teschen (Jessica Biel) eventually resulted in the heartbroken young man leaving Austria to explore the world, his dreams of one day reuniting with the beautiful duchess never faded. Upon returning to Vienna fifteen years later as a talented and renowned illusionist, Eisenheim's hopes of a reunion seem dashed when he learns that Sophie is currently engaged to the Crown Prince Leopold (Rufus Sewell). As the tensions between the Eisenheim and Leopold elevate, urbane Chief Inspector Uhl (Pual Giamatti) finds his sympathy toward Eisenheim growing despite his formal obligations to the powerful prince. When the duchess' lifeless body is discovered and suspicions fall upon the increasingly insubordinate Eisenheim, the dejected magician attempts to use his powers to reveal the true murderer before he takes the fall for a crime he did not commit. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
