Lucky (2017)

“Lucky” (USA, 2017, drama, 88 minutes, not rated)

Harry Dean Stanton stars in the spiritual journey of a 90-year-old atheist and the quirky characters inhabiting his off-the-map desert town.

Having out lived and out smoked all of his contemporaries, and fiercely independent, Lucky finds himself at the precipice of life; thrust into a journey of self exploration, leading towards that which is so often unattainable: enlightenment.

Acclaimed character actor John Carroll Lynch’s directorial debut  is at once a love letter to the life and career of Stanton as well as a meditation on morality, loneliness, spirituality and human connection.

Lynch was nominated for directorial awards at four film festivals.
