Emma Thompson Searches For Good Sex in "Good Luck to You, Leo Grande" Trailer
Searchlight Pictures' upcoming release "Good Luck to You, Leo Grande" stars Emma Thompson as a widowed and retired schoolteacher who, as part of her quest for good sex, winds up developing a close bond with a sex worker named Leo Grande (Daryl McCormack). The film debuted at this year's Sundance Film Festival and is scheduled to drop on Hulu this summer. "Good Luck to You, Leo Grande" was conceptualized and written by Katy Brand and directed by Sophie Hyde, who also directed "Animals" starring Alia Shawkat and Holliday Grainger.
The film has garnered praise for its emphasis on sex positivity and centering an older woman's pleasure, which is still relatively rare to see on screen. From the trailer, it looks like it's primed to be equal parts sexy and sweet. According to the film's official synopsis, "In 'Good Luck to You, Leo Grande,' two-time Academy Award winner Emma Thompson embodies the candor and apprehension of retired teacher Nancy Stokes, and newcomer Daryl McCormack personifies the charisma and compassion of sex worker Leo Grande. As Nancy embarks on a post-marital sexual awakening and Leo draws on his skills and charm, together they find a surprising human connection."
