Got Amazon Prime? “The Story of Luke” is now available to watch for free to all Amazon Prime members! http://a.co/0fGceO2
In the lead role, Pucci, always a thoughtful, compelling actor (he can also be seen in a very different role in the new “Evil Dead”) brings an intriguing sense of curiosity and wonder to the part, albeit underlaid with a certain confusion and sadness.
Mayo’s script avoids turning Luke into some wise holy fool, allowing him to make missteps along the way. (…) “The Story of Luke” is not a saga of epic proportions, but with a huge assist from Pucci’s layered performance, takes a premise that could easily be movie-of-the-week sappy and finds a humanizing lightness. Luke isn’t defined by his place on the autism spectrum, rather he is a person on that spectrum, doing the best he can like anyone else.
