Dealt tells the extraordinary true story of Richard Turner, who became one of the world’s most respected card magicians, despite losing his eyesight at a young age. Charting Turner’s life from his difficult childhood and transformative discovery of card magic through his rapid professional rise, Luke Korem’s engaging and frequently moving documentary illustrates the power of determination and self-confidence in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Shifting between past and present, the film follows Turner as he tours the country with his wife and son, performing dexterous sleight-of-hand for astounded viewers, most of whom have no idea he is blind. Winner of the Best Documentary prize at the 2017 deadCenter Film Festival, Dealt offers a fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpse into the secretive world of magic, and an inspiring portrait of a life lived beyond limits.
