A life-affirming comedy about old age, Lucky is a loving portrait of the late, great character actor Harry Dean Stanton. Lucky lives his way - yoga, cigarettes, crosswords, Jeopardy and beer - but even this ornery old man has a community who cares about him. Counselled by his doctor (Ed Begley, Jr.) to acknowledge his mortality, our hero takes stock of his life. There to offer wisdom are bar owner Elaine (Beth Grant), her lover Paulie (James Darren) and, as Lucky’s best friend, none other than David Lynch.
"[An] outstanding comedy… Everything Harry Dean Stanton has done in his career, and his life, has brought him to his moment of triumph." Joe Leydon, Variety
"It is, simply, a lovely time at the movies." Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"The humblest deep movie of recent years, a work in the same vein as American marginalia like Stranger Than Paradise and Trees Lounge, but with its own rhythm and color." Matt Zoller Seitz, RogerEbert.com
