Lucky Rated 15


Dir. John Carroll Lynch. USA, 2018. 1h 28m. Starring Harry Dean Stanton, David Lynch, Ron Livingston, Ed Begley Jr., Tom Skerritt, Barry Shabaka Henley.

Cantankerous, chainsmoking philosopher Lucky is approaching the end of his long life and embarks on a journey of reflection and self-exploration. Harry Dean Stanton's last major film role is a subtly low-key character study about loneliness and spirituality.

‘Stanton's navy veteran quietly dominates virtually every frame, weather-beaten as the landscape around his small American town.’ ★★★★★ Ed Potton, The Times

‘This is a subtle, unhurried film - not sentimental in the usual sense, but studded with moments of poignant, low-key strangeness.’ ★★★★ Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
