Following a tragic accident a magic duo begin a years long rivalry of magic and madness. Giving away too much of the plot would ruin the best secrets The Prestige keeps up its sleeve. It also features an unbelievable cast including Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale, Michael Caine, and Scarlett Johansson.
