LUCKY is an enchanting film, directed by John Carroll Lynch. It is a sensitive portrayal of an endearing ninety years old atheist facing old age and his immortality close-up. Acted by Harry Dean Stanton, who plays a low key but effective performance. He has a relatively simple routine in a small desert town in Arizona. The local characters are quirky, caring people that help him in their various ways to come to terms with his personal demons. The screenplay by Logan Sparks and Drago Sumonja is a gem. The strong cast turns in some surprising performances that linger in the memory. Cinematography, by Tim Suhrstedt, captures the beauty of the area and the community spirit. It is a thoughtful uplifting story.
