Dir. John Carroll Lynch | Drama | U.S.A. | 2017 | 88 min.
Acclaimed character actor John Carroll Lynch’s directorial debut is at once an homage to the life and career of Harry Dean Stanton and a meditation on mortality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection. Lucky follows the spiritual journey of a 90-year-old atheist (Stanton, in the titular role) and the quirky folks who inhabit his off-the-map desert town. Having outlived and outsmoked all of his contemporaries, the fiercely independent Lucky finds himself out on a figurative precipice, thrust into the sort of self-exploration that leads towards the so often unattainable: enlightenment.
“Everything Harry Dean Stanton has done in his career, and his life,
has brought him to his moment of triumph in Lucky.”
– Joe Leydon, Variety
