LUCKY follows the spiritual journey of a 90-year-old atheist and other characters who inhabit his off-the-map desert town. Having outlived 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. A love letter to the life and career of Harry Dean Stanton, and a meditation on mortality, loneliness, spirituality and human connection. USA, 2017, 88 minutes

“No one who cares about movies and those rare actors who can elevate them into something unforgettable would dream of missing this scrappy, loving tribute to a virtuoso.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“The film subtly shifts from a quietly comical character study to a delicate reflection on loneliness and mortality.” (A NYT Critics’ Pick) ­– Jannette Catsoulis, The New York Times

“What starts out trivial gradually turns into a drama about big ideas: mortality and the meaning of life; the value of relationships and the vulnerability they require.” – Stephanie Merry, Washington Post

“The film is valuable for gently insisting on both the indignities and the dignity of old age, and it’s invaluable as a keepsake of a most individual screen presence. It is, simply, a lovely time at the movies.”
– Ty Burr, Boston Globe
