About the Movie
Spanning more than five years on the streets of New York City, this intimate story of survival follows Lucky Torres, a homeless mother masked in tattoos who longs to rise from a life of darkness. Journalist Laura Checkoway marks an astonishing filmmaking debut with this powerful, unvarnished documentary, capturing an experience rarely depicted onscreen. Executive Producer Steve James (Hoop Dreams, The Interrupters, Life Itself) affirms, “There are not enough of these kinds of stories being told today.”

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The movie's small, and a little too tidy, but its devotion to ritual and routine nonetheless gives the actors room to maneuver.
Fresh: It is, simply, a lovely time at the movies.
Fresh: Nothing big happens, but director John Carroll Lynch zeroes in on the undeniable pathos and hidden feelings in Mr. Stanton's map-lined face.
Fresh: Stanton, as "Lucky" reminds us, remained capable of carrying a movie even to the very end.
I Love Lucky Torres
