Largely confined to supporting parts for decades, the beloved Harry Dean Stanton receives a rare leading role (written specifically for him) as Lucky: a staunchly independent, chain-smoking nonagenarian living in a remote desert town. As his life winds down, Lucky is facing the tricky business of self-exploration, with every trip to the local diner and bar taking on greater significance.
Co-starring Stanton superfan David Lynch, this wry character study offers a moving tribute to one of the cinema’s greatest treasures.
