Last month, the documentary Dealt opened in selected movie theaters.  It is being presented with audio description.  That alone is not news, most new movies shown in theaters now have audio description available. In this case, it is more important to have audio description because of the remarkable person that Dealt tells us about: Richard Turner.

Who is Richard Turner?  Richard is somebody with an amazing talent to dealt cards. In his hands, it just looks natural for the cards to be in perpetual and harmonic movement. He does mind blowing tricks that have deceived many audiences, including master magicians. 

Richard does not know limits! He is a black belt in karate, has walked on a tight rope and swung on a trapeze. He sounds amazing, doesn't he? He is also blind and his blindness has not stopped him from doing anything!

If you are curious enough to see Richard and be inspired by him don't miss Dealt. It is being shown at some movie theaters around the country, and iTunes, Comcast, Verizon, Frontier and Altice have the audio description track. It will be available on home video in February. 

If you want to know about the movie, start by watching the trailer and then by visiting its website.
