This documentary is not about ‘god’ or how ‘Lucky’ these select few are. It is however, a documentary which displays the transformations that people go through.

From the beginning we are introduced to five very dynamic characters who all come from different walks of lives. A Vietnamese Immigrant who works day in and day out to provide for his children, A traditional conservative American family who value no change, A unwell retired man, A huffy looking middle aged man, and of course the average American citizen who lives power ball.

‘Lucky’ than takes us through the lives of each and every one of these people. Showing us what values and beliefs each person who won had. Some wanted little change, a lot, to win, and to even give it all back and wish for it to never have happened.

We are than fast forwarded a year. We witness how people change through money. And we are left comparing each and every one of these peoples lives. Wondering which category we would fit in. ‘Lucky’ shows us all the possible roads we may take if winning the lottery or not winning at all. The values and beliefs we may take upon. Whether that be family, greed, self worth, and maybe not changing at all.

Directed by Jeffrey Blitz. With Steve Ledoux. A documentary about the American lottery and some of the industry’s biggest winners (and losers).
