“Harry Dean Stanton’s performance is infinitely sublime.”
– Paper Magazine
“The performance of a lifetime. Everything Harry Dean Stanton has done in his career, and his life, has brought him to his moment of triumph in Lucky.”
Starring the late Harry Dean Stanton (Paris, Texas, “Twin Peaks”) in “a glorious, Oscar-worthy farewell” (Metro US), LUCKY arrives on Digital HD and DVD on January 2 from Magnolia Home Entertainment. Winner of the Audience Award at the 2017 Chicago Critics Film Festival, the unforgettable film follows the spiritual journey of Lucky (Stanton), a 90-year-old atheist, after a health scare encourages him to explore the true meaning of existence and mortality.
In actor John Carroll Lynch’s (“Fargo”) directorial debut, and inspired by the life of Stanton, LUCKY provides a raw look at one man’s deep self-exploration during his assumed brink of life. Having out lived those closest to him, Lucky starts to reevaluate his lonely, mundane routines – eating breakfast by himself at the only diner in town, completing crossword puzzles, smoking a pack of cigarettes a day, and drinking at the local bar before heading home to watch his shows alone. Through seemingly small encounters with those in his small desert town, such as Howard (Four-time Oscar® nominated director David Lynch, “Twin Peaks”), Bobby Lawrence (Ron Livingston, The Conjuring), Dr. Christian Kneedler (Golden Globe® nominee Ed Begley, Jr., “St. Elsewhere”) and Fred (Golden Globe nominee Tom Skerritt, “Picket Fences”), Lucky ultimately evolves his previously impenetrable definition of life and death.
Special features include commentary from Stanton, behind-the-scenes moments from LUCKY, and interviews with Director John Carroll Lynch, as well as writers and producers Logan Sparks and Drago Sumonja. LUCKY will be available on DVD for the suggested retail price of $26.98 and on Digital HD via iTunes, Amazon Video, FandangoNOW, Google Play and additional digital retailers on January 2.
LUCKY follows the spiritual journey of a 90-year-old atheist and the quirky characters that inhabit his off the map desert town. Having out lived and out smoked all of his contemporaries, the fiercely independent Lucky finds himself at the precipice of life, thrust into a journey of self-exploration, leading towards that which is so often unattainable: enlightenment. 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.
