Magic in the Moonlight (2014)

Film details


In the 1920s, Stanley Crawford an English magician and debunker of spiritualist fakers is persuaded by his friend Howard Burkan Stanley to go on a mission to the Côte d’Azur mansion of the Catledge family to discredit Sophie Baker, a young clairvoyant who has convinced the family that she can contact a dead relative. But to Stanley’s great surprise and discomfort, Sophie accomplishes numerous feats of mind-reading and other supernatural deeds that defy all rational explanation and challenge his deep aversion to spiritualists’ claims that they can perform real magic.
