Though fictitious, I didn't thought I would enjoy this. And it happens to revolve around the great Harry Houdini. The writers must have struggled to keep this story interesting. Though I must say, they pulled it off quite well. Guy Pearce as Houdini makes the legend so human. While Catherine Zeta-Jones and Saoirse Ronan playing the endearing mother and daughter con-artist crooks are a joy to watch.
