Johnny's movies

Lucky Them!

Posted in Uncategorized by Anna Maria Polidori on June 3, 2014

Johnny Depp performed in an indie movie production called Lucky Them coming soon on theaters


Curious story this one of Lucky Them.

Writer and producer Emily Wachtel Image started to write Lucky Them more than a decade ago. At first the location chosen, because  the main thematic is music, was NYC, but later convinced by the director of the movie Megan Griffiths Image, screenwriters and producers opted for Seattle located in the State of Washington, west coast of the Usa. 

It’s a story of loss, growing up, trying to going on with life when life become hard, abandoning self-destructive behaviors for becoming a best person. It is mainly a movie talking of music and past.

Emily wanted so badly for the role of Matthew Smith (in the pictures below in Smith’s role), invented because she had in her mind this actor:

Johnny Depp


And she started to dream.  “I’m going to get Johnny Depp” repeated.


Of course all the rest of people close to her said: “It’s impossible, he is an A-LIST actor, for a lot of reasons he won’t accept”. 


We all know Johnny is humble and dreamers at the end satisfied. For more than six years Emily constantly called Johnny and at the end she realized her dream: Johnny performed in her indie movie after a lot of blockbusters productions Smith’s role. 

The cast, Johnny apart, counts Toni Colette Imagein the role of the ex-girlfriend of a weird musician disappeared a lot of time ago. She needs to search for him. Then Thomas Haden ChurchImage, Oliver PlattImage, Ryan EggoldImage, Nina Arianda, Ahna O’ReillyImage, Lynn SheltonImage

Screenwriters, Emily Wachtel, Caroline Sherman and Huck Botko.


Distributor is the IFC Films.


IFC Films men decided of picking up this movie convinced by the successful appearance at the latest Toronto Film Festival this past fall.

    I loved Depp’s cameo in this film, but Toni Collette was such a star that she really outshone him in their scene: what did you think? My review is here:

      No idea Sarah because I haven’t seen yet this movie. He sounds sweet in that scene. I have seen some pictures, but that’s it.
