Comedy – Drama
A contemporary screen adaptation in true spirit of the 1913 play by G.K. Chesterton. Now set in the 1930s, the paradox and subtle humour of Chesterton remains, as does the stage feel of this film. It's a quirky offering with themes still relevant today as they were back then.
An eccentric Duke hires a Conjurer in answer to his niece Patricia’s garden wanderings and encounters with fairies. Why? As a cure for magic, of course. The evening of the show takes a turn with the arrival of Morris, Patricia’s cynical brother, followed by that of the Stranger only adding to the tension. The household and it's guests (Dr. Grimthorpe and Vicar Smith) are drawn into an unruly situation where the ensuing arguments and challenges threaten to stop the entertainment. Finally, the besieged magician decides to air some of his own demons, conjuring up a very peculiar trick.
