Synopsis

Fresno Filmworks presents “Lucky,” a film that follows the spiritual journey of a ninety-year-old atheist. The directorial debut of actor John Carroll Lynch follows Lucky, the loveable town curmudgeon, as he is faced with the reality that death is surely looming just around the corner. Having lived most of his life in the same arid town, alongside a cast of quirky and eccentric characters, Lucky discovers that the road to true enlightenment requires an unflinchingly honest, and at times, uncomfortable look at life, death and everything in between. Starring the remarkable indie film legend, Harry Dean Stanton, in one of his most acclaimed performances. Also starring David Lynch, Ron Livingston, Ed Begley Jr. and Tom Skerritt. Closed Captioning and other assistive listening services are not available for this film.

Reviews

"Beginning as a broad comedy before blossoming into a wry meditation on death and all the things we leave behind (a transition that kicks into gear when one of Stanton’s old friends shows up and steals the show)...(A) rare portrait of mortality that’s both fun and full of life." — David Ehrlich, IndieWire
"Everything Harry Dean Stanton has done in his career, and his life, has brought him to his moment of triumph in “Lucky,” an unassumingly wonderful little film about nothing in particular and everything that’s important." — Joe Leyden, Variety
