Lucky

Dir: John Carroll Lynch
Cast: Harry Dean Stanton, David Lynch, Ron Livingston
88mins   2018   USA   15   English   

Lucky is an old US Navy veteran of rigid habits and attitudes in a small town. When his routine is interrupted by a sudden collapse at home, Lucky finds himself realising that his remarkably healthy old age is going to face an inevitable decline and he has to accept it. In that difficult reassessment, Lucky must face up to what he believes in and how much it compares to his neighbours' priorities. In doing so, Lucky finds that his life has its positive side as he searches for some meaning that he can accept.

'This is undoubtedly Stanton's show, a powerful love letter to an enduring screen icon'  - Luke Walkley, Little White Lies
