Good Luck to You, Leo Grande

Emma Thompson stars in this comedy drama, about a 55-year-old widowed woman who embarks on a plan to find the sexual fulfillment she never enjoyed during her long marriage.

Nancy is a retired religious education teacher who has previously had only one sexual partner – her husband, now deceased, who provided a secure family home, but not the intimacy or fulfillment that Nancy now wants. She books the services of a sex worker (Daryl McCormack of Peaky Blinders, as Leo Grande) and they meet in a hotel room, with Nancy’s aim being to experience a ‘Big O’ for the first time. Her initial jitters (“I don’t like anything going into places where things are meant to come out”) are soothed by Leo’s professional approach and effortless flirting. Over the coming weeks, Nancy’s confidence grows and the power dynamic between the two begins to shift.

With fantastic performances from both, but particularly Emma Thompson, this is a funny, smart drama about female sexuality.

“Manages to keep one foot firmly on the floor of enjoyably progressive entertainment even as it dances around a peculiarly British minefield in which anxiety and openness about intimacy collide.” Observer

“Empowerment is only one piece of the puzzle, which together forms a refreshingly nuanced portrait of sex work, desire and self-perception.” Independent

“There is genuine chemistry between the two leads and McCormack is insanely charismatic while Emma Thompson is very Emma Thompson but also world class.” The Spectator
