Lucky Trailer

"I know the truth, and the truth matters. And you have to face that and accept it." Magnolia Pictures has debuted an official trailer for a special indie comedy titled Lucky, starring Harry Dean Stanton as the character "Lucky". As the official description explains, the film is not only a "love letter to the life and career of Harry Dean Stanton", but also a "meditation on morality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection" telling the story of a 90-year-old atheist. And it looks damn good. Co-starring Ron Livingston, Ed Begley Jr., Tom Skerritt, Beth Grant, as well as filmmaker David Lynch as "Howard". I'm very curious to see this just to hear everything Harry Dean Stanton has to say, maybe there's some valuable wisdom to pick up from someone who has lived this kind of long life. Besides that, it looks like it has some good laughs. Enjoy.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for John Carroll Lynch's Lucky, direct from Magnolia's YouTube:

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. Lucky is at once a love letter to the life and career of Harry Dean Stanton as well as a meditation on morality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection. Lucky is directed by acclaimed actor-turned-filmmaker John Carroll Lynch, making his feature directorial debut. The screenplay is by Drago Sumonja and Logan Sparks. This premiered at the SXSW Film Festival earlier this year. Magnolia will release Lucky in select theaters starting on September 29th this fall. Interested?

    Can't wait...seems like the movie hews closely to some of HDS's personal philosophies...

    Amazing! I had the great pleasure and good fortune to share a joint with Harry Dean some 40 yrs. ago. We were on location for a big film and at a party for all those working on it. There was a room reserved for those who liked to smoke weed so I immediately went in there and took the first available seat...which happened to be right next to sat in that room for hours toking and drinking beer and I must say, I enjoyed myself immensely. Just a really good, down to earth, no bull sh*t guy...and here he is still kicking and starring in movie. Just excellent, even though this one looks a little sappy to me, but what the heck? He's like 90, so sap away,
    • Watching him taking a jab with Yaphet Kotto at Sigourney weaver in Alien was a delight. Hey! We have also Tom Skerrit in this movie! We lack movies about spirituality in this world ruled by materialism and noise. I don't know if I will pay to watch it in the movies though.

        Hey tarek. We do lack movies about spirituality that's for sure. Which is why I'm also interested in the new Rooney Mara movie with Casey Affleck under a, but hey...bizarre is good these days. Yea, I'll wait to catch Harry Dean in this movie when it comes around on cable...which it might not do as it's such a little indie film. We shall see.

    This looks brilliant in every way. What a marvelous actor and it's so cool to see him (Harry Dean Stanton) and David Lynch share the screen together (all the while, we've still got season three of Twin Peaks to look forward to). This looks like it'll easily be one of the finest films of 2017 and I could see Harry Dean Stanton walk away with the Oscar for this role. The film itself reminds me of a cross between Nebraska and The Straight Story (which was directed by David Lynch and also featured Harry Dean Stanton).
    This character actor is always a pleasure to watch. Waiting for a good DJ Qualls feature.
