More interested in partying and flirting with young musicians than work, veteran rock journalist Ellie Klug (Toni Collette) has one last chance to prove her value to her magazine's editor: a no-stone-unturned search to discover what really happened to long lost rock god Matthew Smith, who also happens to be her ex-boyfriend. Teaming up with an eccentric amateur documentary filmmaker (Thomas Haden Church in a delightful performance), Ellie hits the road in search of answers
 
Director:  Megan Griffiths

Starring: Toni collette, Thomas Haden Church, Oliver Platt

What the critics are saying:
 
The A.V. Club
Mike D'Angelo

Director Megan Griffiths, best known for the grim human-trafficking drama "Eden," proves surprisingly adept at this lighter material, maintaining a slightly loopy tone that serves to make the occasional dramatic moments all the more piercing.

Christy Lemire

Toni Collette radiates smarts, humor and a world-weary cool in Lucky Them. 
 
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers

Haden Church gives the movie the joyous kick it needs. His flirty thrust-and-parry with Collette is beautifully played. 
 
New York Post
Lou Lumenick

Clearly a labor of love for all involved. Listen carefully on the soundtrack and you’ll hear the voice of Joanne Woodward as Ellie’s mom. Woodward is one of the executive producers of this lovely little film, which is dedicated to her late husband, Paul Newman. 
 
Los Angeles Times
Martin Tsai

Director Megan Griffiths and writers Huck Botko and Emily Wachtel flesh out a female perspective that's refreshing and engrossing without demonizing or objectifying men.
