lucky_-_official_trailer

Ninety-year-old Lucky lives alone in the outskirts of a small desert town. He likes his little daily routines. His health is not bad, although he smokes a pack a day. But after he faints in his kitchen, he starts brooding over his existence. Despite his grumpiness, Lucky is popular among the people he meets on his fixed itinerary – to the diner, the shop and the pub. Everybody is all ears when Lucky has something to say, and everyone gets worried when they notice this new change in his mood.

The film moves calmly but steadily. It borrows techniques from the theatre in its approach to the scenes, characters and dialogue, without ever becoming less cinematic. Secondary characters are there solely to facilitate the main character’s last spiritual journey, and it is no secret that this is also an homage to the late Harry Dean Stanton’s life and career.
