“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”—Variety. Wow. In September, Harry Dean Stanton, one of our greatest actors, though never a household star, passed at the age of 91. No actor has ever had a more perfect last role and performance than he did in his first outright starring role, in LUCKY, which follows the spiritual journey of a 90-year-old eccentric 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 morality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection, also starring David Lynch (!), Beth Grant and Tom Skerritt. Unrated. 86 Min.
