English Summary:

Death Defying Acts is a 2007 British-Australian supernatural romance film, directed by Gillian Armstrong, and starring Guy Pearce and Catherine Zeta-Jones. It concerns an episode in the life of Hungarian-American escapologist Harry Houdini at the height of his career in the 1920s. It was screened in a special presentation at the 2007 Toronto International Film Festival.

 

In 1926, 13 years after his mother's death, illusionist Harry Houdini (Guy Pearce) has begun debunking mystics, psychics and others who claim to have paranormal powers. He offers US$10,000 to anyone who can quote his mother's dying words to him.

 

Impoverished and uneducated Scottish con artist Mary McGarvie (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and her daughter Benji (Saoirse Ronan) set their sights on Houdini's reward when he visits Edinburgh on tour. Mary's psychic act pulls in the public: Benji surreptitiously gathers information on members of the audience, information Mary uses to con them into believing they can reach out to their deceased loved ones.

 

Their only obstacle is Houdini's protective manager, Sugarman (Timothy Spall). Mary manages to charm the unsuspecting magician, but as they spend more and more time together, Sugarman intervenes, trying to prevent Houdini from becoming entangled with Mary, of whom he is suspicious.

 

Hungarian Summary:

Mary McGarvie, és kislánya nem mindennapi produkcióval szórakoztatják a szenzációra éhes közönséget: azt állítják, az asszony médium, aki képes a halottakkal kommunikálni. Egy napon a legendás illuzionista, Harry Houdini érkezik a városba, és nagyvonalú ajánlatot tesz: 10.000 dollár üti a markát annak, aki képes pontosan "közvetíteni" elhunyt édesanyja utolsó szavait. Mary elfogadja a kihívást - és elvarázsolja a bűvészt. Houdini szenvedélyes viszonyba bonyolódik a bájos szemfényvesztővel, miközben épp pályája legveszélyesebb mutatványára készül...
