Description

We're so excited to host John Carrol Lynch's new film 'Lucky', which was nominated for the Golden Leopard at Locarno Film Festival 2017. Acclaimed actor Harry Dean Stanton plays the titular "Lucky", with supporting work from David Lynch, Ron Livingston, Tom Skerrit, and Ed Begley Junior.

Following the screening is Q+A with director John Carroll Lynch, acclaimed character actor known best for his work in Zodiac, Fargo, Shutter Island, as well as roles in numerous television series.

This event will be held at Dodge Hall, room 511 (2960 Broadway).


Synopsis

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 attainable: enlightenment.

Acclaimed character actor John Carroll Lynch's directorial debut, "Lucky", is at once a love letter to the live and career of Harry Dean Stanton as well as a mediation on mortality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection.
