The Prestige: films reviewed in 50 words-ish

Cleverly inspired by Nikola Tesla’s wilder claims and his rivalry with Thomas Edison, this is an engaging period piece and the competition between the protagonists is both gripping and believable. But for a film on how to build to a climax, The Prestige ends disappointingly having worked too hard to ensure we understand its ending.
A solid 7 out of 10.
Director: Christopher Nolan……Starring: Hugh Jackman……Christian Bale……Michael Caine……Scarlett Johansson……David Bowie
The History Boys……The Page Turner (La Tourneuse de pages)
