In one of his final on-screen roles, Harry Dean Stanton plays Lucky, a crabby, self-reliant 90-year-old atheist. Having outlived and out-smoked all of his contemporaries, he finds himself at a precipice – embarking on a journey towards some kind of enlightenment. Or, at best, a day without aches and pains.
Directed by John Carroll Lynch and featuring a cast that includes David Lynch, 'Lucky' is at once a love letter to the life and career of a screen legend, and a meditation on mortality, solitude and human connection.
One of The Guardian’s Biggest Films of 2018.
