Visually impaired actor Skyler Davenport stars as a blind house sitter in the upcoming See for Me from director Randall Okita, which has now been acquired by IFC Midnight.
Deadline reports that IFC Midnight will release the film in 2022.
Here’s the plot synopsis provided to Deadline…
“Davenport plays blind former skier Sophie who accepts a last-minute house-sitting job in a secluded mansion. But she awakes in the middle of the night to find the house under invasion by a group of thieves seeking a hidden safe. Her only means of defense is a new app called “See For Me”, which matches her with a volunteer across the country who uses Sophie’s cell phone to see on her behalf. Stubbornly independent, Sophie is reluctant to accept help until she is connected to Kelly, an army veteran who spends her days playing first person shooter games.”
Kim Coates, Jessica Parker Kennedy, Pascal Langdale, Joe Pingue, George Tchortov, Laura Vandervoort, and Emily Piggford also star in the upcoming See for Me.
Adam Yorke and Tommy Gushue wrote the script.
Meagan wrote in her review for Bloody Disgusting out of Tribeca this year, “It’s a simple story that’s stunningly executed.” She also calls it a “well-crafted and propulsive thriller.”
