Movie Info

Every day, millions of people purchase lottery tickets hoping to hit the jackpot. In this documentary, Jeffrey Blitz tracks down five people whose tickets won them more money than they ever dreamed of, and examines how their windfalls changed their lives, for better or worse. A Vietnamese couple in a small Nebraska town who won $22 million describe their struggle to stay grounded, while another husband and wife who won $110 million see their relationships with friends and family implode.

  • Lucky has its moments, but even with good... performances its vile characters are never likable enough to make you laugh at (or forgive) their wickedness.

  • 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.

  • May not change your world view, but it's pretty interesting to see what happens after a middle-class family wins $314 million.

    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.

    In my opinion, The title of this documentary should've been called "Blessed" I know luck is a HUGE part of winning but I think when you win you are blessed.Great documentary on the up's & down's of people who won the lotto & 1 lady who plays daily hoping to win.This a documentary you should definitely check out
