In GOOD LUCK TO YOU, LEO GRANDE, Emma Thompson plays an unhappy 55 year old widow who hires a handsome young man from a high end escort service. That might sound like the setup for a bad pornographic romance fantasy, but I can assure you it’s not. Instead it’s a surprising coming of age comedy-drama about a woman who finally learns to accept herself. Anyone expecting something lewd from this thought provoking comedy-drama will be disappointed. Conversations between Nancy and Leo as they get to know each other make up most of the film. What little sex there is takes place near the end and is not graphically depicted. It’s one of the year’s best films. (Streaming on HULU)
