Lucky
Lucky

Fri. 10/20 - Fri. 10/27

(NR) 1 Hr. 26 Min. (Digital) In English (Comedy, Drama)

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. Stanton passed away Sept. 15 at age 91. The character actor, whose career spanned six decades, was a friend of Brando, Hunter S. Thompson, Jack Nicholson, Bob Dylan and many other Hollywood illuminati. Stanton spent his early days riding the range in Gunsmoke and Rawhide and went on to make notable appearances in the films Cool Hand Luke, Kelly's Heroes, Dillinger, The Godfather Part II, Alien, Escape from New York, Christine, Repo Man, Paris, Texas, Pretty in Pink, The Last Temptation of Christ, Wild at Heart, The Straight Story, The Green Mile, Alpha Dog and Inland Empire. This film is one of the last two he made.
“A beautiful showcase for the 90-year-old Harry Dean Stanton, giving one of the best performances of his remarkable career.” ~ RogerEbert.com
“Everything Harry Dean Stanton has done in his career, and his life, has brought him to his moment of triumph in "Lucky," an unassumingly wonderful little film about nothing in particular and everything that's important.” ~ Variety

The Florida Project

Opens Fri. Oct. 27

(R) 1 Hr. 55 Min. (Digital) In English (Drama)

Set on a stretch of highway just outside the imagined utopia of Disney World, The Florida Project follows six-year-old Moonee (Brooklyn Prince in a stunning breakout turn) and her rebellious mother Halley (Bria Vinaite, another major discovery) over the course of a single summer. The two live week to week at “The Magic Castle,”  a budget motel managed by Bobby (a career-best Willem Dafoe), whose stern exterior hides a deep reservoir of kindness and compassion.  Warm, wining and gloriously alive, Sean Baker’s The Florida Project is a deeply moving and unforgettably poignant look at childhood.
“A fabulous mosaic of one particular pocket of America's invisible homeless population - families living hand-to-mouth in motels originally designed to catch the tourist overspill from the flashy theme-park resorts across town.” ~ Hollywood Reporter
