An American journalism student in London scoops a big story, and begins an affair with an aristocrat as the incident unfurls.
Scoop is one of three 2006 films to feature both the topic of magic and magicians as main characters. The other two are The Illusionist (2006) and The Prestige (2006), the second of which also stars Hugh Jackman and Scarlett Johansson. Woody Allen was tutored in magic and illusion for the movie by Scott Penrose.
