Trivia

The Ticket was filmed almost exclusively in Kingston (Ulster County) NY. Oliver Platt's character Bob addresses the homeowner audience in the basement hall of Clinton Avenue Methodist Church. The dance scene was filmed in the vintage 2nd floor social hall of St. Mary's Social Club: the room, with its retro globe light fixtures, hadn't been used for years and was re-vamped for the film shoot. Dan Steven's character James' modern apartment, after he regains his sight, was a rented Air BnB on lower Broadway. One location considered for the telemarketing office was a former IBM facility HQ in the adjacent town of Ulster. See more »

[repeated lines]
James: I'm thankful for everything I have. I'm deeply satisfied with my life and everything in it. I live for today and enjoy what I do. I don't compare myself to others.

Rather Depressive Melodrama
7 June 2017 | by larrys3See all my reviews

Dan Stevens stars here as James, a man who suddenly regains his sight, after many years, when a pituitary brain tumor shrinks. At first, he celebrates with his loving wife Sam (Malin Akerman) and his 13-year-old son Jonah (Skylar Gaertner). However, soon James wants more in his life and this leads to strong marital discord and his engaging in shady and manipulative business practices at his real estate company job.

This will all eventually lead to predictable consequences, and the film became to me a very slow paced melodrama that I didn't really enjoy. The very vague and ambiguous ending certainly didn't help any either.
