Friday at the Lantern: Tales of two legends

As the Magic Lantern is opening two movies, I'm giving the place its own separate post. This is especially appropriate considering that each film is about a legend in his own field.

The Lantern's Friday openings are:

"Lucky": The late Harry Dean Stanton stars as a 90-year-old guy who goes on a spiritual journey. It'd be worth it just to see another performance by one of the great characters actors in film history.

"Take Every Wave: The Life of Laird Hamilton": Documentary filmmaker Rory Kennedy takes us into the world of one of the world's premier big-wave surfers.

If you go, tell Jonathan that I said hi.
