Directed by Christopher Nolan, 'The Prestige' is the story of two magicians, both out to perform the ultimate trick. The prestige refers to the third act of every illusion - the part which leaves the audience amazed. So when one of them performs a trick with a prestige, the other is desperate to get to the bottom of it, whatever the cost. And so it goes back and forth until one of them performs what must surely be the ultimate trick. It stars Michael Caine and Christian Bale - stars of another Nolan Movie, 'Batman Begins' - and they are joined by, among others Hugh Jackman, Scarlett Johanssen and David Bowie. 'The Prestige' is showing at cinemas nationwide.
