Two films this week at the David Lean Cinema: a tragic love story preceded by the contemplation of a man at the end of his life.
On Tuesday, one of the last roles of veteran actor Harry Dean Stanton, Lucky follows an atheist nonagenarian who spends his days drinking, smoking and watching television in his small Texas town.
Described by Variety as ‘the performance of a lifetime’, Lucky, having out lived and out smoked all of his contemporaries, now finds himself at the precipice of life, thrust into a journey of self exploration, leading towards that which is so often unattainable: enlightenment.
A Star Is Born (15) is our film for Thursday afternoon and evening. This star-studded remake has been very anticipated and doesn’t disappoint, as Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper play opposite each other and is very well reviewed.
