The Prestige (2006) Netflix
In London, at the end of the 19th century, when the magicians were the most acclaimed idols, two young illusionists intend to achieve fame. The sophisticated Robert Angier (Hugh Jackman) is a consummate artist, while the crude and purist Alfred Borden (Christian Bale) is a creative genius, but lacks the ability to publicly execute his magical ideas. At first they are companions and friends who admire each other. However, when the best trick devised by both fails, they become irreconcilable enemies: each one of them will try by all means to overcome the other and end him. Trick to trick, show to show, is forged a fierce competition that has no limits.
