Films We Like is thrilled to announce the Canadian rights acquisition of LUCKY, the directorial debut of actor John Carroll Lynch.

A comedy drama about mortality and spirituality, LUCKY stars legendary actor, singer and musician Harry Dean Stanton with a stellar ensemble cast that includes: David Lynch, Ron Livingston, Ed Begley Jr., Tom Skerritt, Beth Grant, and James Darren. LUCKY recently premiered March 2017 at the SXSW (South By South West) Film Festival in Austin, Texas.

LUCKY follows the spiritual journey of a 90-year-old atheist (Stanton) 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.

"Truly magical,” said Films We Like President Ron Mann. “It doesn’t matter what age you are—it will capture your heart”. Films We Like plans for a simultaneous release in Canada with US distributor Magnolia Films this fall.
