We’ve been championing it on the site for months, and now we can reveal that Harry Dean Stanton’s poignant final film Lucky has a UK release date.
Lucky follows the spiritual journey of Harry Dean Stanton’s character ‘Lucky’, a cantankerous, self-reliant 90 year old atheist, and the quirky characters that inhabit the Arizona town where he lives. 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.
The cast also features director David Lynch (Twin Peaks, Mulholland Drive, Blue Velvet), Ron Livingston (The Conjuring, Swingers, Office Space), Ed Begley Jr.(St. Elsewhere), and Tom Skerritt (Alien, Top Gun, Contact).
Our review of the film from the London Film Festival last year read:
“John Carroll Lynch’s film may plod for some, but make no mistake, this is a phenomenal piece of work from all involved, the title not just referencing the name of its main character, but the perfect adjective to sum up how blessed we are to have been able to witness it.”
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, and will be released by Eureka Entertainment in cinemas nationwide (UK & Ireland) and On Demand from 14 September 2018.
Here’s the new UK trailer.
