Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The young people seen here never seem artificial; you feel their passion for doing magic, as well as their nagging loneliness, devoted as they are to practicing card tricks and such for hours on end, while their peers are off doing what most teenagers do. – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, May 12, 2011

Fresh: A charming, affectionate and often elegantly executed study of teenage magicians, their craft and the social shadows they step out of when they do their stuff. – John Anderson, Variety, May 5, 2011

Fresh: The various sleights of hand are impressive even if we're afforded little insight into their actual execution. Still, it's fun stuff. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, May 27, 2011

Rotten: This tension between self-expression and professional advancement is fascinating material, but first-time director-editor J. Clay Tweel avoids the nuance that might have brought it to life. – Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader, May 12, 2011
