Ottawa Premiere on Friday October 13!
Follows the spiritual journey of a 90 year old atheist and the quirky characters that inhabit his off the map desert town. Having out lived and out smoked all of his contemporaries, the 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 Harry Dean Stanton as well as a meditation on mortality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection.
“Lucky serves as a first-rate showcase for its star as well as an ideal swan song. The man couldn’t have gone out any better.” (Mike D’Angelo, A.V. Club)
“Everything Harry Dean Stanton has done in his career, and his life, has brought him to his moment of triumph in ‘Lucky’, an unassumingly wonderful little film about nothing in particular and everything that’s important.” (Joe Leydon, Variety)
“(FOUR STARS) It’s the humblest deep movie of recent years, a work in the same vein as American marginalia like ‘Stranger Than Paradise’ and ‘Trees Lounge’…” (Matt Zoller Seitz, RogerEbert.com)
