The official trailer has been unveiled for Shout Factory film, "The Ticket". The highly acclaimed and much anticipated suspense drama is scheduled for release April 7th. "The Ticket" is 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. The film stars Dan Stevens (Beauty and the Beast, FX series Legion), Malin Akerman (Billions, Watchmen), Kerry Bishé (Halt and Catch Fire, Argo) and Oliver Platt (Chicago Med, Fargo).
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.
