Good Luck to You, Leo Grande

On Friday, January 6, Sharon and I watched Good Luck to You, Leo Grande on Hulu. I had seen Emma Thompson talking about the film on The Late Show with Steven Colbert.

Good Luck to You, Leo Grande is a 2022 sex comedy-drama film directed by Sophie Hyde and written by Katy Brand. The film stars Emma Thompson and Daryl McCormack. Retired widow Nancy Stokes hires a good-looking young sex worker called Leo Grande, in the hope of enjoying a night of pleasure and self-discovery after an unfulfilling married life.

For her performance, Emma Thompson was nominated for a Golden Globe as Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.

When the movie was over, Sharon said "that was really good." I liked it a lot more than several of the Oscar favorites, such as The Banshees of Inisherin and Tár. Nevertheless, I don't expect the film to be nominated in any of the major Oscar categories.
