Acclaimed character actor John Carroll Lynch's directorial debut "Lucky", is at once a love letter to the life and career of Harry Dean Stanton as well as a meditation on morality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection. The legendary Harry Dean Stanton stars as a hard-living 90-year-old atheist on a spiritual journey, in this eccentric and moving film also featuring Stanton's longtime pal David Lynch.
With supporting turns from the likes of Stanton's old friend and collaborator David Lynch – who drops by to grieve for his deceased turtle – and an unpretentious, meditative storytelling style, Lucky emerges as a funny and unexpectedly touching film about a man who's long stopped giving a damn. It's the performance of a lifetime, from a true living legend.
'Lucky is a remarkable film, a living testament to the talent and formidable screen presence of the late Harry Dean Stanton. I think we are the lucky ones to have such a beautiful film to remember the actor by.' - leonardaltin.com
'When Mr. Stanton sings a song near film's end, at a child's birthday, in Spanish, it's more spectacular than the parting of the Red Sea.' - Wall Street Journal
Exclusive season screening at Luna Leederville.
