Entertainment Reviews:

Los Angeles Times - 07/11/2008
"The poetic Houdini tale transports to 1920s Scotland and has magic that's sure to surprise."
Sight and Sound - 08/01/2008
"Pearce's intelligent, dignified performance is complemented by a typically scene-stealing character turn from Timothy Spall..."
Empire - 10/01/2008
3 stars out of 5 -- "[E]nlivened by a spirited performance from Zeta-Jones and another charismatic turn from ATONEMENT's Ronan....It's visually pleasing..."
New York Times - 09/12/2008
"The picture's modest charms sneak up on you scene by scene, and as shot by Haris Zambarloukos it has a burnished, seductive glow."

Product Description:

Celebrated director Gillian Armstrong (MY BRILLIANT CAREER, LITTLE WOMEN) helms this film about Harry Houdini's romance with a con woman. In his attempts to contact his dead mother, the magician (Guy Pearce) meets a beautiful psychic named Mary (Catherine Zeta-Jones) who isn't all she appears. Joined by her daughter (ATONEMENT's Saoirse Ronan), Mary tries to con Harry out of his $10,000 reward, an effort which is complicated by the love that grows between them. Set in 1926, this lush period drama also stars Timothy Spall (ENCHANTED).
