The Lucky Ones Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Director [[Performer~P319360~Neil Burger~neilburger]]'s road movie The Lucky Ones stars [[Performer~P108437~Tim Robbins~timrobbins]], [[Performer~P334531~Rachel McAdams~rachelmcadams]], and [[Performer~P270269~Michael Peña~michaelpeña]] as three Iraq War veterans who take a road trip together. The trio meet on their way home from overseas with Fred Cheaver ([[Performer~P108437~Robbins~timrobbins]]) finishing his service once and for all, while the other two -- Colee Dunn ([[Performer~P334531~McAdams~rachelmcadams]]) and TK Poole ([[Performer~P270269~Peña~michaelpeña]]) -- are about to enjoy 30 days of R and R. A blackout leads to the three renting a car together after their flight is indefinitely delayed, and driving from New York to Cheaver's home in St. Louis. Upon arrival, Cheaver learns that his wife wants a divorce, and his son needs 20,000 dollars in order to attend Stanford. Emotionally shaken, Cheaver tries to drop the other two off at the airport, but they refuse to go until they can help him through his troubles. The two of them, however, are going through their own issues. Poole suffered an injury while on duty that he worries will end his relationship with his girlfriend, and Dunn is trying to deliver a guitar to the parents of her deceased boyfriend, a fellow soldier who died overseas. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
