SHOUT! Factory Films today unveiled the official movie trailer for Ido Fluk's THE TICKET, starring Dan Stevens (Beauty and the Beast, FX series Legion), Malin Akerman (Billions, Watchmen), Kerry Bishe (Halt and Catch Fire, Argo) and Oliver Platt (Chicago Med, Fargo). A captivating tale of desire and perception, THE TICKET will open in cinemas on April 7, 2017 and available on-demand everywhere.
Directed by Ido Fluk and written by Fluk and Sharon Mashihi, THE TICKET was produced by Lawrence Inglee, Oren Moverman, William L. Walton, Matthew Malek and A Blackbird Production in association with Rush River Entertainment, Cave Pictures and Initiate Productions.
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. Director Ido 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.
THE TICKET, a film by Ido Fluk, had its World Premiere at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival. The film will open in U.S. cinemas and available on-demand everywhere on April 7.
