Synopsis

From the time they first met as young magicians on the rise, Robert Angier (Hugh Jackman) and Alfred Borden (Christian Bale) were competitors. However, their friendly competition evolves into a bitter rivalry making them fierce enemies-for-life and consequently jeopardizing the lives of everyone around them. Full of twists and turns, ‘The Prestige’ is set against the backdrop of turn-of-the-century London. The cast includes Michael Caine, Scarlett Johansson and David Bowie.

Dove Review

“Prestige” has a very interesting premise and many twists and turns along its magical ride. Wonderful acting and writing captivate you and draw you into the story of the two entertaining magicians who get caught up in competing against each other and stealing each other’s secrets. The film falls out of reach for the family audience with some major sexual indiscretions and degenerate behavior. Also the violence, while not shown graphically, is gruesome in its context and its significance.
