It’s been three years since Dan Stevens crashed that car into a ditch, breaking the hearts of Downton fans around the globe. Since then he’s left lovely, honorable and ever-so-slightly stuffy Matthew Crawley well and truly behind, going on to play increasingly morally conflicted characters instead.
There was “David,” a murderous ex-soldier and the result of a failed military experiment in 2014’s The Guest; then Kenny Kristo, a moustachioed drug trafficker in A Walk Among The Tombstones starring Liam Neeson; and now, in new feature The Ticket, there’s James, a blind man who one morning awakes to discover he can see again.
Directed by Ido Fluk (Never Too Late), the movie is a modern fable, showing what happens when we fall for the materialist and superficial trappings of a “good” life.
It premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival over the weekend, and Vanity Fair has an exclusive clip:
