Lucky (Stanton) is a 90-year-old veteran living in a small remote desert town. His fiercely independent life has happily revolved around a daily routine involving yoga, diner visits, crossword puzzles, TV game shows, cigarettes and meeting up with his long-time friends at his local. But now as he contemplates the end of life, he finds himself on a late journey of self-exploration...
This award-winning first feature from actor-turned-director John Carroll Lynch (Fargo, Zodiac) allows Harry Dean Stanton (Cool Hand Luke) to shine as the elderly atheist seeking the meaning of his life.
Stanton's final on-screen performance is funny, touching and beguiling, and all the more poignant in the knowledge that he passed away just days before the film’s US cinema release.
