Movie Summary

Director:
Alan Rudolph
Released:
1997
Rating:
R
The appropriately named Lucky Mann (Nick Nolte) is a contractor equally handy at repairs and seduction. The latest lonely housewife to succumb to his charms is Marianne (Lara Flynn Boyle), childless and unhappy with her marriage to business-obsessed Jeffrey (Jonny Lee Miller). When Jeffrey coincidentally becomes enraptured by Lucky's wife, the fading former starlet Phyllis (Julie Christie), the four get caught in a tangled-up love quadrangle that reignites their tired marriages.
