Lucky, which features Harry Dean Stanton’s final (and, if not his best) performance, hits DVD January 2 via Magnolia Home Entertainment.
The feature centers on Lucky (Stanton), a 90-year-old atheist who’s living a seemingly mundane life in a desert town. Upon closer inspection, however, Lucky has enough friends at his local diner and bar to get him through the day. But Lucky understands his final days on this Earth may be just around the corner, and he’s having an understandably rough time facing his own mortality. Along with Stanton’s evocative work, the picture also features wonderful performances from David Lynch, Ron Livingston and Tom Skerritt.
Special features on the DVD include the segments “A Few Words from Harry Dean Stanton,” “Behind the Scenes: Harry Dean Stanton’s Final Film Take,” the theatrical trailer, and interviews with director John Carroll Lynch and writers/producers Logan Sparks and Dargo Sumonja.
