Emma Thompson wants to go to bed, but not alone but with Leo! Lionsgate Films have released the official UK Trailer for Good Luck To You, Leo Grande that Emma yearns adventure in her life.
Thompson plays Nancy a mid 50’s widow retired schoolteacher who is yearning some adventure in her life. Some human connection, and some sex. Good sex. That comes in the shape of Leo Grande (Daryl McCormack).
The film premiered back in January at Sundance Film Festival, our writer Freda Cooper gave the film 4 stars saying ‘the film cradles us with an irresistible balance of truth and wryly observed compassion. It’s one of the best at this year’s Sundance and deserves all the luck in the world.’ It seems she was not alone when it came to favourites at that festival with other critics agreeing with Freda. When it comes to sex with say 50 and over it seems a tad taboo for some, but we all do it! If you read our reviews we recommend this one!
Nancy Stokes (Emma Thompson), a retired schoolteacher and widow, is yearning for some adventure, some human connection, and some sex. Good sex.
Whilst her husband Robert provided a home, a family, and something resembling a life, good sex was never on offer. But he’s gone now, and Nancy has a plan: she will find adventure with a sex worker named Leo Grande (Daryl McCormack). In an anonymous hotel room Nancy greets Leo. He looks every bit as good as his picture, but what Nancy wasn’t expecting was conversation as well as fornication.
Leo has a view on everything, and though he may not always tell the truth, Nancy finds she likes him. And he likes her. With growing sexual confidence, Nancy starts to relax. Over the course of three rendezvous, the power dynamics shift and their well-worn masks begin to slip.
Good Luck To You, Leo Grande will be released in UK and Irish cinemas from 17th June. If you live in the USA, the film will be released on Hulu the same day.
