"I didn't want to comment until I had watched this movie again, but this movie is AMAZING! The thought work and artistic choices made throughout this film were excellent. I loved the romance, the thriller, and the historical genres being combined! I give it 4.5 ⭐ out of 5, but with an additional 0.5 for the writer who decided the random tree would disappear with the wizard, very much a 5 ⭐ out of 5! #thriller #magic #illusion #mystery #historical_fantasy "
"I love this film. Edward Norton, Paul Giamatti lead this stellar cast with beautiful scenes, a very well written script (based on a short story) and music by Philip Glass, this film hits all of the notes for a great experience for the audience. I’ve seen this movie several times and love it each viewing. Their is a twist, which is so delicious. "
