Synopsis by Perry Seibert
Megan Griffiths's rueful comedy Lucky Them stars Toni Collette as Ellie Klug, a beloved rock journalist who has been covering the Seattle music scene for decades. When her boss (Oliver Platt) orders her to look into the mysterious disappearance of a onetime superstar on the scene, who also happened to be romantically involved with Ellie, the jaded writer joins forces with a wannabe documentary filmmaker (Thomas Haden Church) to hunt down the singer, who may or may not have killed himself. Complicating matters, Ellie finds herself falling in love with a young singer/songwriter who is looking for his big break. Lucky Them screened at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
