watch sleight 2016 full movie online free. A young street magician is left to take care of his little sister after his mother’s passing and turns to drug dealing in the Los Angeles party scene to keep a roof over their heads. When he gets into trouble with his supplier, his sister is kidnapped and he is forced to rely on both his sleight of hand and brilliant mind to save her.
Magic tricks become shorthand for the power of personal transformation in JD Dillard’s modestly scaled thriller that’s equally an accessible domestic drama. Loaded with talent on both sides of the camera, Sleight displays the hallmarks of a potential indie crossover that stands to attract both niche and genre audiences alike.
Set in Los Angeles, the film centers on Bo (Jacob Latimore), a street magician in his early 20s struggling to raise his younger sister Tina (Storm Reid) after the recent death of their mother. Bo’s specialty is levitating small metallic objects to the delight of his audiences, but they’re unaware that he’s using an unusual electromagnetic levitation device he invented himself that’s crudely attached by wires and circuits to his arm. Unable to get by with tips from card and coin tricks alone, Bo takes up selling party drugs to yuppies and frat boys for Angelo (Dule Hill), a paternal but inflexible dealer.
After a day performing on the streets of L.A., Bo discovers a note among his tips with a phone number left by Holly (Seychelle Gabriel), an apparent admirer. When they meet for a lunch date he learns that she’s a charming and emotionally direct community college student, which resonates with Bo, since he had to give up a university scholarship to be able to care for Tina. They begin dating, but Bo is frequently called away by Angelo, who is giving him new opportunities to push product, but also greater responsibility that comes with increasing peril.
