5 out of 10 Great Houdini film
Denise from Sligo, 02 Dec 2013
Catherine Zeta Jones & her daughter Saoirse Ronan are residents in Edinburgh, performing a "Mystic Meg" type of act in their local theatre. Word arrives that the great Houdini (Guy Pearce) is visiting major cities and is setting mystics a challenge. This is right up their street. Enjoy this story, and if you've ever been to Edinburgh city you'll enjoy the setting....

4.5 out of 10 Death Defying Acts
Deirdre from Galway, 01 Oct 2009
From the moment I saw the traler for this dve I wanted to see it. The story about Houdini alone was facinating the acting and cinematography good as well and the twists in the story made it an enjoyable watch

3.5 out of 10 Death defying Acts
Beverly from Dublin, 29 Jun 2009
beautifully made, Zeta Jones is surprisingly good, although guy Peirce may have been miscast here..Robert downey Jr would have been far more suitable.

What's it about....
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 (Catherine Zeta-Jones) who isn't all she appears.
