There, he befriends eight-year-old Boone (Antonio ‘A.J.’ Ortiz).

Lucky Bastard - From writer-director Everett Lewis, the film follows Rusty (Patrick Tatten), a successful architect with to-die-for pecs, bulging biceps and a killer smile. When his stodgy boyfriend leaves town, Rusty has a chance encounter with a handsome though seedy drifter, Denny (Dale Dymkoski). Blinded by Denny’s good looks, vulnerability and hustler charm, Rusty begins an intense, steamy relationship ruled by long-dormant passions. However, as Denny’s control over Rusty strengthens, it soon becomes clear that Rusty – now on a seductive ride of sex and drugs – must decide what it is he truly wants.
