Torn Page Productions and Seminal Films is pleased to announce the release of the dramatic comedy, ‘Lucky Days’, Angelica Torn and Tony Torn’s award-winning directorial debut and the last film produced by Paul Newman. It is also the last movie filmed in the Coney Island Amusement Park, offering a final glimpse into the faded glory of this historical destination that has been lost forever.
Virginia (Angelica Torn) embarks on a quest for freedom during the last explosive weekend of Coney Island’s renowned amusement park. After the reappearance of her childhood sweetheart (Luke Zarzecki), Virginia discovers hidden truths about her boyfriend (Federico Castelluccio) and her neighborhood that will force her to abandon everything she’s ever known to the wolf pack of developers buying up and tearing down the boardwalk, or to sacrifice herself to the world that created her. Also starring Marilyn Sokol, Tina Benko, Gary Wolf, and Jeff Whitmore. Lucky Days is a fresh, darkly romantic film that won Best Feature at the Coney Island Film Festival and also received the Remi Award at Worldfest. The Dallas Observer says, “Angelica Torn’s luminescent performance beautifully carries the film, which casts a beguiling spell in the manner of director Alan Rudolph’s early work.” Sandra Bernhard praises the film’s “shattering dialogue, brilliant acting and fine-tuned direction” and The USA Film Festival calls it “A knockout!
