Lucky Chicken

By Gulliver Moore | Comedy
A baker comes across a magic chicken. But the butcher steals it.

A romantic fantasy filmed without dialogue, “Lucky Chicken” is a quirky modern-day fairy tale about a butcher, baker and candlestick maker, set on a charming London block.

A down-on-his-luck baker can’t seem to catch a break — his store is empty, and the candlestick maker he’s in love with doesn’t seem to know he’s even there.

But then his fortunes begin to reverse when he encounters a magic chicken, who can lay fantastical eggs that change his life.

Starring actor Will Merrick, who appeared on cult British show “Skins,” the film has a distinctively bright, whimsical look, thanks to cinematographer Oliver Clubb, making it a pleasure to watch.

Told without dialogue, the story — based on an award-winning script from Matthew Stallworthy — moves nimbly, with the help from expressive performances and a spritely, elegant score.

By the time it reaches its charming ending, “Lucky Chicken” will have enchanted viewers with its blend of wit and whimsy.
