A wonderful film. I highly recommend. This is a must watch film.

The Prestige (2006)

At the dawn of the 20th century, rival magicians Robert Angier and Alfred Borden attempt to show each other’s secrets.

This film came out around the same time as The Illusionist. The Illusionist received more press but I have to say this film out shines The Illusionist.
