A film that Vanessa has written about a number of times... Avie Luthra’s Festival-played South African drama Lucky, has been picked up for Stateside release by Film Movement.

To recap, here's the full synopsis:

How could a recently orphaned, 10-year old homeless South African boy ever be called Lucky? Over the grave of his dead mother, Lucky makes a promise to make something of himself. Leaving the security of his remote Zulu village for the big city with the hope of going to school, he arrives on the doorstep of an uncle who has no use for him. Lucky falls in with an elderly Indian woman with a pathological fear of Africans, who takes him in as she would a stray dog. Together, unable to speak each other's language, they develop an unlikely bond. Through an odyssey marked by greed, violence, and ultimately, belonging, LUCKY shows how a child's spirit can bring out decency, humility and even love in adults struggling to survive in the new South Africa.

Film Movement plans an early 2013 limited theatrical release as well as a day-and-date VOD launch. When specific dates have been finalized, we'll certainly have them for you.

In the meantime, watch the trailer and three clips from the film below:
