Good Luck to You, Leo Grande (2022)

  • Comedy, Drama
  • 1h 37m

Nancy Stokes (Emma Thompson) doesn’t know good sex. Whatever it may be, Nancy, a retired schoolteacher, is pretty sure she has never had it, but she is determined to finally do something about that. She even has a plan, involving an anonymous hotel room and a young sex worker who calls himself Leo Grande (Daryl McCormack). Leo is confident, dapper, and takes pride in being good at his job. He also appears to be intrigued by Nancy — one of many things to surprise her during their time together.

Sophie Hyde (52 Tuesdays, Animals) returns with this charming, intimate comedy about genuine human connections, sex postivity, and female pleasure. McCormack shines as the witty and empathetic Leo Grande, whose chemistry with Thompson’s wonderfully complex Nancy is captured by Hyde’s tender direction and Bryan Mason’s attentive camerawork.

Written by comedian Katy Brand, Good Luck to You, Leo Grande strikes the perfect balance between unapologetic humour and an earnest study of the art of (self) acceptance.
