Good Luck to you,Leo Grande (15) at Number 8, Pershore
Emma Thompson stars in this comedy drama about sexual empowerment and self-discovery. Nancy (Thompson), a retired teacher and widow, is yearning for adventure, and sex. Good sex.
Arranging to meet Leo Grande a sex worker in a hotel Nancy finds he looks every bit as good as his picture, but what she 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.
Directed by Sophie Hyde.
