Follows Nancy Stokes, a 55 year-old widow who is yearning for some adventure, human connection and some sex, good sex.

Good Luck To You, Leo Grande is based on an original screenplay by British Comedy award-winner Katy Brand (Katy Brand’s Big Ass Show, Rose D’Or winner Psychobitches ) and is currently in post production.

Cornerstone Films will handle international sales and distribution and commenced sales at the AFM, co-repping the U.S sales rights together with CAA Media Finance. 

Nancy Stokes (Thompson) is a 55 year-old widow who is yearning for some adventure, some human connection, and some sex. Good sex. For the first time in her life. Whilst her husband Robert provided a home, a family, something resembling a life, good sex was never on offer. But he’s gone now, and Nancy has a plan. As she says, ‘there are nuns with more sexual experience than me’. So, being the reasonable, practical woman she is, and as an ex-teacher she likes to be organised, she does some thorough research and hires the services of Leo Grande, a sex worker (or ‘sex therapist’ as he prefers it) in his early twenties for a night of bliss.

Sophie Hyde commented; “I’m thrilled to be working with the tremendously funny and heartbreakingly honest Emma Thompson to explore intimacy and desire, and to put on screen a relationship that feels unexpected and delightful. At a time when our need for each other is so vividly present, it will be a delight to create and show this connection between two people, which is funny, sexy and moving.”
