O Lucky Man!

In this extraordinary mix of wickedness, energy and humour, Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange, 1971) plays Mick Travis, a determined young man. Starting off as a coffee salesman, Mick is soon promoted within his company. But then a series of bizarre obstacles occur, all threatening Mick’s trajectory toward success. As Mick becomes smitten with the gorgeous Patricia (Helen Mirren), he winds up working for her father, the sinister executive Sir James Burgess (Ralph Richardson), where things progressively get stranger.
