Lucky, the title character, is a crabby old eccentric who is fond of a drink and is keenly aware of his own mortality. It’s the kind of character that the Paris, Texas actor can make a soulful meal out of.
Director John Carroll Lynch has created a real love letter to Harry Dean Stanton with this drama, showcasing his hangdog expression and wounded eyes. Come to admire the unique acting talent of Stanton, and stay to watch David Lynch delivering the most moving soliloquy on tortoises ever. Harry Dean Stanton sadly died just a few weeks before the film’s release.
'This is Stanton’s movie and his interactions with this world in microcosm and its star-crossed inhabitants constitute a master class in acting… No one who cares about movies and those rare actors who can elevate them into something unforgettable would dream of missing this scrappy, loving tribute to a virtuoso. Lucky may not believe in God. But what kind of fool doesn’t believe in Harry Dean Stanton… The late, great character actor gets the perfect send-off in this character study about an elderly man not going gently into the night…' Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
