Magic Hits the Silver Screen in May’s “Made in NY” Films

May 1, 2013 - With stories of divorce, seeking fame and magical bank robberies, this month’s “Made in NY” films feature stars from film and television.

In their new film What Maisie Knew directors Scott McGehee and David Siegel tell the story of a young girl, caught in the middle of her parents’ bitter divorce. Featuring Julianne Moore, Alexander Skarsgard and introducing Onata Aprile, the film is a modern adaptation of a novel by Henry James and premieres May 3.

After losing her boyfriend, her agent and her career, indie film starlet Halley Fieffer will stop at nothing to change her path and become the celebrity she knows she should be. In He’s Way More Famous Than You actor and director Michael Urie blurs the lines between fiction and reality in this film about one actress’ journey to the top. The film premieres May 10.

Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Morgan Freeman star in the new heist film Now You See Me. FBI agents track a team of illusionists who pull off bank heists during their stage performances and reward audiences with the money. Now You See Me debuts in theatres on May 31.
