Jeffrey Blitz’s new documentary, LUCKY

Jeffrey Blitz, a Hopkins grad, started his career with the great SPELLBOUND and followed with a feature he shot in Baltimore called ROCKET SCIENCE. Many of you saw it as the Closing Night film a couple of years ago with Governor  O’Malley and Blitz hosting. (The Governor stayed and hung with Blitz during the screening and urged him to come back with another film.)  The young actress Anna Kendrick, now celebrated alongside George Clooney in UP IN THE AIR, was the lead in ROCKET SCIENCE. His new doc, LUCKY, explores the world of lottery winners.   -Jed
