Perhaps not so lucky.
LUCKY BASTARD (2014) is the story of a shy young man who wins a contest to have relations with a famous adult star on an adult website. When the young man arrives at the house/set location, his every move is captured on the numerous reality television-style wallcams that are spread out everywhere in the house. It is the found footage from these cameras that tells the story of the inevitable and horrifying reality of what actually happened.
The “Lucky Bastard” employees treat their work matter-of-factly. Mike once clearly had more serious artistic ambitions, but now he runs the company and directs all of the “Lucky Bastard” website’s content. Ashley, the website’s most popular performer, initially refuses to participate because she knows the winner will be humiliated by the experience, but ultimately gives in when offered extra money. And the contest winner, Dave, an unassuming and shy young man, finds himself driven by shame and humiliation into committing the most horrifying acts imaginable.
At the center of the story are: Mike (Don McManus), who owns the “Lucky Bastard” website; his top adult star Ashley Saint (Betsy Rue); and Dave G. (Jay Paulson), the unsuspecting shy young man who wins the contest.
The director and co-writer of LUCKY BASTARD* is veteran television writer-producer Robert Nathan, best known for his Emmy-nominated work on Law & Order, and who is also an award-winning novelist and journalist.
LUCKY BASTARD is rated NC-17 by the MPAA for explicit sexual content.
