Lodge 49 (AMC 2018, Wyatt Russell, Brent Jennings)

Comedy drama Lodge 49 is set in Long Beach, California and is about a disarmingly optimistic local ex-surfer, Dud (Russell), who’s drifting after the death of his father and collapse of the family business. Dud serendipitously finds himself on the doorstep of a rundown fraternal lodge, where a middle-aged plumbing salesman and “Luminous Knight” of the order, Ernie (Jennings), welcomes him into a world of cheap beer, easy camaraderie and the promise of Alchemical mysteries that may – or may not – put Dud on the path to recover the idyllic life he’s lost.
