As Luck Would Have It

3.5 Anne Murphy

An out-of-work publicist who suffers an accident looks to sell the exclusive interview rights to the highest bidder in an attempt to provide for his family.

A film of today that provides plenty of food for thought. Under the director's scrutiny are the media and their audiences, both hungry for sensational news. "As Luck Would Have It" is an original but grim satirical drama about a life and death story that unfolds under full media attention. How ordinary people respond to the extraordinary and ethical questions about the price of a life holds the audience's attention through to the closing frames. Unlucky for some.
