Woody Allen writes and directs this romantic comedy starring Colin Firth and Emma Stone. In the 1920s, English magician and illusionist Stanley Crawford (Firth), who on stage masquerades as Chinese conjuror Wei Ling Soo, travels to the French Riviera where he attempts to expose the secrets of spirit medium Sophie Baker (Stone). Sophie is suspected of exploiting the wealthy Catledge family and Stanley finds her staying in their home, having been invited there by Grace Catledge (Jacki Weaver), who wants the clairvoyant's help in contacting her deceased husband. Though he is initially certain she is a fraud, the more time Stanley spends with Sophie, the more he begins to believe she might be genuine. The cast also includes Marcia Gay Harden, Eileen Atkins and Simon McBurney.
