From the Director of the Oscar-nominated classic The Triplets of Belleville, The Illusionist is a story about two paths that cross. While touring concert halls, theaters and pubs, an aging, down-on-his-luck magician encounters a young girl at the start of her life’s journey. Alice is a teenage girl with all her capacity for childish wonder still intact. She plays at being a woman without realizing the day to stop pretending is fast approaching. She doesn’t know yet that she loves The Illusionist like she would a father; he already knows that he loves her as he would a daughter. Their destinies will collide, but nothing – not even magic or the power of illusion– can stop the voyage of discovery.

Friday, March 8 screening at 5:30 p.m. in Warmer Auditorium (floor PH, LB building, 1060 Bishop St.)
Friday’s screening will include FREE PIZZA and a discussion led by History Professor Dr. Linda Lierheimer.
