From Everett Lewis, the acclaimed writer-director of the art-house hits Luster and The Natural History of Parking Lots, comes an arousing and dark-edged story of a passionate affair set amidst the backroom bars, dark alleys and sordid hotel rooms of modern-day Los Angeles - a city were even if you're lucky enough to have it all, it doesnt mean you know exactly what you want.
Rusty (Patrick Tatten, The Soloist) is a successful architect with to-die-for pecs, bulging biceps and a killer smile. When his stodgy boyfriend leaves town, Rusty has a chance encounter with a handsome though seedy drifter, Denny (Dale Dymkoski, TV's "Law and Order: SVU"). Blinded by Denny's good looks, vulnerability and hustler charm, Rusty begins an intense, steamy relationship ruled by long-dormant passions. However, as Denny's control over Rusty strengthens, it soon becomes clear that Rusty - now on a seductive ride of sex and narcotics - must decide what it is he truly wants.
Lucky Bastard is an edgy, sensual and salacious exploration of youthful indiscretion, sexual indulgence and the high stakes of attraction - a story that rings true to anyone who's ever fallen for the wrong guy for all the right reasons.
