Magnolia has released a new trailer for John Carroll Lynch‘s Lucky, starring Harry Dean Stanton. Stanton plays a 90-year-old atheist who sets off on a spiritual journey to enlightenment in his dusty desert town. The film also stars David Lynch, Ron Livingston, Ed Begley Jr., Tom Skerritt, and Beth Grant.
As a longtime admirer of Stanton’s impressive filmography, this looks like a more personal film for him and I cannot wait to check it out when it hits theaters September 29th.
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. Acclaimed character actor John Carroll Lynch’s directorial debut “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.
