Movie Info

Americans spend $62 billion each year on lottery tickets, and every time someone buys one they likely imagine what their life would be like if they suddenly won a multi-million dollar prize. But the dream and the reality are often very different, and filmmaker Jeffrey Blitz offers a look into the lives of several folks who won big with unexpected results in this documentary.

Blitz's fundamental embrace of human eccentricity shines through in a film that glows with optimism even as it reveals the dark side of a miracle.

Instead of a searing portrait of luck, resentment, and opportunity, the picture wanders around picking up little nuggets of behavior and transformation, unable to manufacture a sweeping portrait of a controversial institution.

Audience Reviews for Lucky

An interesting look at lottery winners and what happens to them afterwards. The problem is that nothing seems terribly surprising. A lot spend money on crap that they don't need. Others fall out with wives, friends and family over the winnings. Perhaps we didn't need the documentary to tell us that.
