GOOD LUCK TO YOU, LEO GRANDE
Dir. Sophie Hyde | 2022 | UK | 97 mins | 15 | English language
Retired widow Nancy Stokes hires a good-looking young sex worker called Leo Grande, in the hope of enjoying a night of pleasure and self-discovery after an unfulfilling married life. As Nancy embarks on a post-marital sexual awakening and Leo draws on his skills and charm, together they find a surprising human connection. Written by comic Katy Brand and directed by Sophie Hyde (ANIMALS), this is a thoughtful film that combines comedy with a refreshingly positive and healthy message about sex, led by a peerless performance from Emma Thompson.

“A refreshing, intelligent bedroom drama … a quietly hilarious study on emotional and sexual intimacy carried by two powerhouse performances.” Stefania Sarrubba, Little White Lies
“A beautiful movie about desire and pleasure, this is the rare crowd-pleaser that’s still willing to take risks.” Drew Gregory, Autostraddle
“Emma Thompson is sensational in a part that relies on her voluminous nervous energy.” Nick Allen, RogerEbert.com
