Your Lucky Day: Lucky Life is Finally Available. Watch It for Free!

One of my favorite movies of 2010 was Lucky Life.

Never heard of it? I’m not surprised. It was never released in the U.S. It only played a couple of festivals, if I recall correctly.

But it needs to be seen. It’s the newest film by the director of 2007′s awe-inspiring film Munyurangabo. You may remember that I was particularly excited about that film, and that I interviewed the director, Lee Isaac Chung. (The Interview: Part One, Part Two)

Lucky Life arrived before The Tree of Life, and I thought about it often when Malick’s film arrived. The films have a lot of similar things on their minds.

I wholeheartedly recommend it to you.

And now, thank God, it’s streaming for free on Hulu.

Also: If you’re interested in hearing from the filmmaker himself, here’s an essay he contributed to Filmwell.
