About the Movie
One of the most renowned card magicians of all time, Richard Turner astounds audiences around the world with his legendary sleight of hand. What they may not even realize—and what makes his achievements all the more amazing—is that he is completely blind. Charting Turner's colorful life from his tumultuous childhood to the present, Dealt reveals how through determination and force of will, he overcame seemingly insurmountable obstacles to rise to the top of his profession. It's both a tantalizing, up-close look at the secretive world of magic and a candid, awe-inspiring portrait of a man who lives beyond his limitations.

There is something here for everyone. Watched the official premier at SXSW and the entire audience was moved to a standing ovation. Excited to add this to my iTunes library as I would like to make every student in high school watch this movie. It really makes you evaluate how you are living your life and inspires you to become better.
saw it at South by Southwest
incredibly inspiring and entertaining. the ending moved me to tears.
Richard Turner is mesmorizing. The movie isn't just a highlight reel of his talent, it's a captivating look at what it takes to be truly great at something without minimizing the cost. I was super inspired. Worth every minute of your time.
