Lucky (CTC)

Lucky movie poster

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 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.

"What better way to end such an illustrious career than to smile in the face of death? Seems like a very Harry Dean Stanton thing to do." - FILMINK AUSTRALIA

"The humblest deep movie of recent years...A beautiful showcase for the 90-year-old Harry Dean Stanton, giving one of the best performances of his remarkable career." - ROGEREBERT.COM

"Even it weren't arriving immediately after his death at the age of 91, this effortlessly moving portrait would be a milestone in Stanton's career " - HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

"The late, great Stanton gets the perfect send-off playing an atheist loner kicking his own mortality down the road like a tin can that got in his way." - ROLLING STONE

"A wise and wistful love letter from one remarkable character actor to another." - INDIEWIRE

"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
