Death Defying Acts (2007)

In a similar way that Public Enemies romanticized the last days of John Dilinger, Death Defying Acts takes a melodramatic look at the end of Harry Houdini's life.

Plagued with the recent death of his mother, famed illusionist Harry Houdini is on a quest to speak to the dead - or at least demonstrate clairvoyance to be fraudulent. He meets his match in Scotland where a beautiful single mother promises to help him communicate with this dead mother.

While the story is a stretch from real events, they are remarkable in that they even resemble the truth. It is an interesting tale and the acting in it is acceptable.
