One of the more interesting character-driven dramas I've watched in quite some time; starring Dustin Hoffman, Nick Nolte, Jill Hennessey, and an otherwise stellar cast, directed by Michael Mann, cancelled after 1 season courtesy of PETA.
"Luck" is a very subtle drama, with great character depth, about horse-racing, the gaming industry (including Native Americans), gamblers, jockeys, gangsters, venture capitalists, and the cruelty of the sport and how it seems to make those around it equally cruel to each other.
The subtlety of the acting in this short-lived series was astounding; the cinematography - stunning; filming of the horses and other barnyard animals and their relationships to humans was poignant. There were a few scenes in which the horses were interacting with the humans that was nothing short of 'spiritual' (for lack of a better word).
If you appreciate great character development, filming, direction, and subtle plot-lines, you'll appreciate this short-lived HBO series.
