The Ticket review
We all ask ourselves if given the chance would we reach out and grab that lottery ticket if given to us? The idea of everything being handed to us after enduring for so long. Ido Fluk and Sharon Mashihi understand this and perhaps manipulate this into greed and lust – Perhaps? “The Ticket” presents this question, but like most thought provoking questions – This film has no answer for you.
Directed Ido Fluk, from a script written by Fluk and Sharon Mashihi. “The Ticket” stars Dan Stevens (The Guest) as James, a man blind from youth, with a comfortable life with his wife Sam (Malin Åkerman) and son Jonah (Skylar Gaertner). One day he regains his vision discovering he’s not happy or contempt with his life – grabbing a promotion at work, leaves his wife for Jessica (Kerry Bishé) an employee where he works, and mistreating his friend Bob (Oliver Platt) one of James’s blind co- workers.
Dan Stevens as always is fierce and enigmatic as James. Stevens is careful not to have you sympathize with James and the choices he makes along the way – But to ponder on each choice and wonder what’s driving him. See, like each character in “The Ticket” (And there aren’t many) they all have something driving them – something they want. Sam is fine and happy with going dancing, rather than an eloquent restaurant. She’s also tired and Malin shows this beautifully. James, however, wants more, and Stevens never slows down giving us a moment to blame James for his choices.
Director Ido Flunk beautifully directs, with a unique visual flare centering around James’s point of view. Where the film falls would be the predictability of its plot and lack of motivation for its characters.
