Description
Paul Giamatti and Edward Norton star in this Academy Award–nominated 2006 drama—a favorite here at Daedalus—loosely based on Steven Millhauser's short story "Eisenheim the Illusionist." In fin-de-siècle Vienna, Chief Inspector Uhl (Giamatti) relates to Crown Prince Leopold (Rufus Sewell) the seemingly miraculous magic act of Eisenheim (Norton). When Leopold attends a performance and volunteers his fiancée Sophie (Jessica Biel) for an illusion, the young noblewoman and the magician recognize each other as childhood lovers. Still in love, they arouse the jealousy of the violent Leopold, while Uhl tries to discover the true nature of Eisenheim's magic.

"[Portraying] Uhl ... a character who feels sympathy for the magician but owes allegiance to Leopold and is therefore divided and compromised ... Giamatti's performance is subtle, expressive, and richly nuanced."—Chicago Reader

"[Edward Norton's role] ... perfectly fits his disturbing inscrutability."—NYTimes

"[Jessica Biel] ... is entirely stunning enough to fight to the death over."—Variety
