A magician competes in an international magic competition where he goes head to head with a female street magician he has fallen in love with. This film shows great magic performed by a cast of professional magicians.

Sometimes you hear people say about movies, "Well, they don't make'em like they used to."
This one is. Simple, fun, well-made. If you like romantic-comedies with a splash of magic, then pull up a seat and check this out.
I hear they showed this at the Magic Castle in Hollywood and that must have been a lot of fun.
A dash of romance, a lot of comedy and a little mystery make this movie easy to recommend.
Don't expect splashy CGI effects, those are not here. But there are some pretty impressive magic tricks to see. Earlier this year the movie "Now You See Me" came out and it was fun for almost the opposite reasons that this is fun. That was just outlandishly silly and as long as you let yourself go with it, it was enjoyable.
This is not outlandish, it's just honest entertainment made with good integrity.
Apparently it's up on iTunes now, so that probably means it's up pretty much everywhere. I would recommend this.
