Rating & Content Info
Why is The Illusionist rated PG-13? The Illusionist is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for some sexuality and violence.
Eisenheim and Sophie’s childhood romance continues to be objectionable even as adults because of society’s class distinctions. But the gap in their standings doesn’t stop the couple from spending the night together. As his reputation spreads, Eisenheim’s act grows more intense and less entertaining as he seemingly brings spirits back from the dead. A murder, suicide and the prince’s abusive treatment of one character are depicted. Cigars, smoking pipes and drinking are portrayed in several settings.
