About the Movie

Dan Stevens and Malin Akerman star in this intense Tribeca Film Festival breakout drama about a blind man who inexplicably regains his vision and 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 Åkerman) 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 modern morality fable of desire, perception, and what it really means to be blind.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: 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. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Apr 6, 2017

Fresh: Boasting complex, sharply drawn characters and top-notch performances, this mature drama plays with ideas of seeing, both the outside world as well as within oneself, as Fluk masterfully depicts intimacies gone awry. – Jay Weissberg, Variety, Apr 25, 2016

Rotten: 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. – Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, Apr 6, 2017

Fresh: This is a film that moves quietly along but speaks volumes. – Miriam Di Nunzio, Chicago Sun-Times, Apr 7, 2017

The little indie that could packs a powerful punch

This movie is a little slow at parts but a beautiful movie nevertheless. Dan Stevens does an amazing job in it.
