Eisenheim(Edward Norton)was fascinated by magic as a child after a chance meeting with an illusionist. He began perfecting the art, and even managed to impress Vienna's Duchess, Sophie von Teschen (Jessica Biel). The two formed a secret relationship, though their class differences meant nothing official could become of it.
Years later Eisenheim has traveled the world as a famous magician, and has returned to Vienna for a chance performance in front of Crown Prince Leopold (Rufus Sewell), Sophie's soon-to-be husband. Sophie and Eisenheim rekindle their former flame, but this time the illusionist is unwilling to bow down to royal tradition.
The Illusionist earned $87 million at the box office, five times its budget. It was nominated for an Oscar.
