When charismatic but down-on-his-luck Stanton Carlisle (Bradley Cooper) endears himself to clairvoyant Zeena (Toni Collette) and her has-been mentalist husband Pete (David Strathairn) at a traveling carnival, he crafts a golden ticket to success, using this newly acquired knowledge to grift the wealthy elite of 1940s New York society. With the virtuous Molly (Rooney Mara) loyally by his side, Stanton plots to con a dangerous tycoon (Richard Jenkins) with the aid of a mysterious psychiatrist (Cate Blanchett) who might be his most formidable opponent yet.

A film by Guillermo del Toro.

★★★★ - "I could not take my eyes off the screen." - Observer

★★★★ "Cooper works magic with an unassumingly sensational turn." - RogerEbert.com

★★★★ "Cate Blanchett is outstandingly icy and mischievous, but this is Bradley Cooper's show." "Nightmare Alley feels like a true delightfully twisted noir." - Flickering Myth

"[Nightmare Alley] proves most enjoyable for its sumptuous look and throwback atmosphere, with a loaded cast receiving a jolt of electricity whenever Blanchett's on the screen." - CNN.com

"Nightmare Alley pays tribute to noir. But it's also its own dark snow globe, luminous and finely faceted, and one of del Toro's most fluent features." - Hollywood Reporter
