Lucky

A film by John Carroll Lynch

Back
Lucky 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 his contemporaries, our fiercely independent hero finds himself at the precipice of life, thrust into a journey of self-exploration, leading toward that which is so often unattainable: enlightenment. Acclaimed 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 mortality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection.
