Emma Thompson plays a retired schoolteacher and widow who hires a sex worker named Leo Grande for a night of passion.
When films are set in one location, they can become quite boring if the script and performances aren’t interesting enough.
But, thankfully, this isn’t the case with Good Luck to You, Leo Grande.
Sophie Hyde’s comedy-drama begins with retired schoolteacher and widow Nancy Stokes (Emma Thompson) nervously awaiting the arrival of sex worker Leo Grande (Daryl McCormack) in her hotel room.
She has been craving adventure, human connection, and sexual fulfillment since her husband passed away two years before.
But now the moment has finally arrived, she is freaking out and about to lose her nerve.
Enter Leo Grande, a relaxed young Irishman who knows how to put his customers at ease.
They settle into conversation – lots of conversation – until Nancy can decide if she wants to do the deed or not.
You can rest assured that this film is not a seedy story filled with tonnes of sex.
It is more about Nancy’s...
