About the Film

Directed by Ido Fluk and written by Fluk and Sharon Mashihi, THE TICKET is a visually distinctive, captivating tale about ambition, values and how we respond to the twists and turns of life. After James (Dan Stevens), a blind man, inexplicably regains his vision, he becomes possessed by a drive to make a better life for himself. However, his new improvements—a nicer home, a higher paying job, tailored suits, luxury car—leave little room for the people who were part of his old, simpler life: his plain wife (Malin Akerman) and close friend Bob (Oliver Platt). As his relationships buckle under the strain of his snowballing ambition, it becomes uncertain if James can ever return from darkness. Fluk paints a visual world that reflects the mesmerizing effect that newfound sight has on James; the vibrant backgrounds and the sun-drenched rooms are captivating in their beauty. His dreamy and subjective style combines with an astute sense of character to craft a tale of desire, perception, and what it really means to be blind.

“a compelling examination of human nature” – iDigitalTimes

“a fiercely committed performance from Dan Stevens.” – The Guardian
