Aroview: Harry Dean Stanton plays an eccentric and fiercely independent veteran called Lucky, who lives in a small Arizona desert town. A gentle exploration of mortality, the titular Lucky explores self-enlightenment as he faces the inevitability of his own demise. A meditative love letter to Stanton’s life and filmography, referencing numerous career highlights and parallels with his personal life.
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 mortality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection.
“An unassumingly wonderful little film about nothing in particular and everything that’s important.” ~ Variety.
