Death Defying Acts
When famous escape artist Harry Houdini (Guy Pearce) arrives in Edinburgh and offers a $10,000 reward to anyone who can contact his mother from beyond the grave, a beautiful but deceptive psychic (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and her young ‘sidekick’ daughter (Saoirse Ronan) take the challenge. As Houdini spends time with this mysterious woman, he is beguiled by her charms, and what begins as a con evolves into a far more complicated and dangerous affair. The film is written by Tony Grisoni and Brian Ward and directed by award-winning director Gillian Armstrong.
