It is a movie based on one of the great feats of heroism and sacrifice in a war filled to the brim with such things. Nolan is no slack as a movie maker. The Prestige is one of the more underrated films of the last decade or so, IMHO.
Nolan brings a realism and grittiness to what he does. This little chapter in history could use his touch. Not sure if I’ll see it in theaters or not, but I think I’ll definitely see it.
