Lucky

8:00 PM 23rd January 2019 Fermanagh House

Harry Dean Stanton bows out with a subtle star turn in this low-key study of death and ageing.

Lucky is an old US Navy veteran of rigid habits and attitudes in a small town. When his routine is interrupted by a sudden collapse at home, Lucky finds himself realising that his remarkably healthy old age is going to face an inevitable decline and he has to accept it.

In that difficult reassessment, Lucky must face up to what he believes in and how much it compares to his neighbours' priorities. In doing so, Lucky finds that his life has its positive side as he searches for some meaning that he can accept.
