‘Music and Lyrics’ star Drew Barrymore’s collaboration with Australia’s ‘hulky’ Eric Bana is preparing to bring it’s lucky ways into our theatres.

‘Lucky You’ follows a young singer from Bakersfield named Billie Offer (Drew Barrymore) who possess’ more heart than talent and Huck Cheever (Eric Bana), a poker player whose emotions at the table often undermine his exceptional skill, especially when he is heads up with his father, poker legend L.C. Cheever (Robert Duvall). The one aptitude Billie and Huck seem to share is a knack for reading people—the difference is what they do with that gift. While Huck’s instincts enable him to take advantage of his opponents at the poker table and expertly avoid both emotional connections and long-term commitments in his personal life, Billie uses her intuition to see the emotional truth of those around her and sympathize with their pain. When these two meet, the real game begins. If Huck is going to win Billie’s heart, he must learn to play cards the way he has been living life and live his life the way he has been playing cards.
