The Prestige Movie
The Prestige Movie

 

Angier: You never understood why we did this. The audience knows the truth: the world is simple. It’s miserable, solid all the way through. But if you could fool them, even for a second, then you can make them wonder, and then you… then you got to see something really special… you really don’t know? It was… it was the look on their faces…

In the movie The Prestige, Angier explains to his friend Borden why he does magic. Magic is a trick. We the people know the truth that it cannot possibly happen in real life. But through magic we get to make room for doubt, for surprise, a room for wonder to settle in and maybe think that even the impossible is possible sometimes. Maybe the verb to wonder is to open the door for God to enter our hearts to change our lives or we can choose to shut Him out and live miserably.

So magic helps us to wonder. Go now and book a ticket for the next magic show!
