Movie Info

After James, 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 and close friend Bob. 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.

Critic Reviews for The Ticket

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (10)

This is a film that moves quietly along but speaks volumes.

April 7, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The story proceeds with the deliberate, inexorable force of a fable, but never abandons its characters' humanity in the process.

April 7, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

An Icarus tale without the feeling of flight or the sensation of burning.

April 7, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Stevens lends nuance to the role, but the truth is that James is shallow before, during and after his transformation into a ruthless hotshot. This cautionary fable offers far less than meets the eye.

April 6, 2017 | Full Review…

There are some gnarly questions - of faith, love and self-worth, for starters - at the heart of "The Ticket," if only its makers had chosen to address them.

April 6, 2017 | Full Review…

"The Ticket" is a modern-day parable about a kindly blind man who, when he gains sight, becomes generically awful.
