Nancy Stokes, a retired school teacher and widow, is yearning for some adventure, some human connection, and some sex. Good sex.

While 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: she will find adventure with a sex worker named Leo Grande.

In an anonymous out-of-town hotel room Nancy greets Leo. With growing sexual confidence, Nancy starts to relax. Over the course of three rendezvous, the power dynamics shift and their well-worn masks begin to slip.

'A refreshing, intelligent bedroom drama, Good Luck To You, Leo Grande is a quietly hilarious study on emotional and sexual intimacy carried by two powerhouse performances' - Stefania Sarrubba, Little White Lies
