Good Luck to You, Leo Grande (MA 15+)

Typically, good intercourse isn’t really about intercourse.

Nancy Stokes (Emma Thompson) is a 50-something widowed retired trainer, who, after a lifetime of disappointing intercourse, decides to take it into her personal palms when she hires escort Leo Grande (Daryl McCormack).

Leo arrives at Nancy’s resort room; she is nervous and awkward, he’s charming and good-looking. On this room over a number of bookings we see what occurs behind closed doorways if you pay somebody for his or her physique, for a fantasy. Nancy is scared however determined to expertise issues she feels she missed out on in life, whereas Leo tries his finest to accommodate Nancy’s wants.

Flirting with the discomfort that surrounds the intercourse trade, preconceived notions are challenged; not everybody hires an escort for intercourse and never all escorts wish to be saved. We see Leo in moments of deep reflection, we see Nancy push the consumer/ supplier boundaries. By the top of the movie, we really feel like we all know them each intimately.  

Verdict: Thompson and McCormack play their components completely; the story has an incredible stability of uncomfortable moments and lighthearted laughs. 3.5 stars.

Seen on the Capital Movie Competition at Dendy Cinema.
