About The Illusionist

The Illusionist box art

Nominated for a Golden Globe, this wistful animated tale follows the fading fortunes of aging illusionist Tatischeff, who's forced to perform in obscure venues as his act is eclipsed by the growing popularity of rock bands. He gets an emotional lift, however, from a wide-eyed girl named Alice, who believes he possesses magical powers. But Tatischeff's "sleight of hand" efforts to impress her with expensive gifts may lead to his financial undoing.
