Lucky
Lucky

Fri. 10/20 - Thurs. 10/26

(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 Pathological Optimist

Mon. 10/23 & Tues. 10/24

(Doc) 1 Hr. 33 Min. (Digital) In English

In the center of the recent Tribeca Film Festival scandal surrounding his film VAXXED: From Cover-up to Controversy, stands Andrew Wakefield, discredited and stripped of his medical license for his infamous study suggesting a link between the MMR vaccine, bowel disease, and autism. The Pathological Optimist takes us into the inner sanctum of Wakefield and his family from 2011- 2016 as he fights for his day in court in a little known defamation case against the British Medical Journal. Wakefield attempts to clear his name as the media-appointed Father of the Anti-vaccine movement. Director Miranda Bailey weaves a delicate portrait of a man who is The Pathological Optimist utilizing a never-before-seen, full access look at the man at the center of one of the biggest medical and media controversies of our times. 

There will be a Skyped Q&A tonight with Dr. Andrew Wakefield and the film’s director, Miranda Bailey, at 8:30 p.m. Miranda Bailey will do a Skyped Q&A following the film at 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
