Edinburgh, 1926. Mary McGarvie (Zeta-Jones) scrapes a living posing as a psychic with the help of her young daughter Benji (Ronan). When escapologist Harry Houdini (Pearce) arrives in town, Mary accepts his challenge to prove her abilities by proclaiming his mother’s dying words. She tries to guess them while growing closer to Houdini.
Despite the confused tone and underwhelming romance, this pretty little picture entertains in the main thanks to the intriguing subject matter and top turns from Zeta-Jones and Ronan.
