Good Luck to You, Leo Grande

What's it about?

Nancy Stokes doesn’t know good sex. Whatever it may be, Nancy, a retired schoolteacher, is pretty sure she has never had it, but she is determined to finally do something about that. She even has a plan: It involves an anonymous hotel room, and a young sex worker who calls himself Leo Grande.

Why did we pick it?

A really welcome surprise, this reassuring comedy is full of warmth with two exceptional performances at its core. An enthusiastic and sexy film that packs genuine heart and isn't afraid to make itself heard.
