The journey proves as rewarding as the destination in “Lucky Them,” [which] turns out to be a good one in this terrifically acted dramedy directed by rising talent Megan Griffiths.
Director Megan Griffiths’ charming little indie is pleasing on a number of levels, but much if its allure comes from the sexy, flawed, complicated woman at its center.
"Lucky Them" has that rare gift: It leaves its audiences warm and happy, as the best romantic comedies do.
More interested in partying and flirting with young musicians than work, veteran rock journalist Ellie Klug (Toni Collette) has one last chance to prove her value to her magazine’s editor: a no-stone-unturned search to discover what really happened to long lost rock god Matthew Smith, who also happens to be her ex-boyfriend. Teaming up with an eccentric amateur documentary filmmaker (Thomas Haden Church in a delightful performance), Ellie hits the road in search of answers.
