Emma Thompson is brilliant in Sophie Hyde’s (Animals, SFF 2019) sparkling comedy about an older woman who hires a sex worker and the unexpected relationship that blooms.
Nancy Stokes (Thompson), once a stern schoolteacher, is recently widowed and ready for some adventure. Particularly of the sexual kind. Nancy has had a relatively good life in the conventional sense, but good sex was not part of it. And so she hires an attractive young sex worker named Leo Grande (Daryl McCormack, Peaky Blinders) and books an anonymous, faraway hotel room. Nancy is deeply anxious; Leo is confident, charming and intelligent. Over the course of three liaisons, the two reveal of themselves more than they could have expected, and are transformed in unimaginable ways. Handled delicately by Australian director Hyde, this is a sex-positive and hilarious film that’s about a lot more than sex.

An amusing, compassionate and humane drama acted and directed with terrific panache.
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
‘There are nuns out there with more sexual experience than me,’ Nancy quips. Yes, but here, pleasure is both sacred and practical, a wobbly balance that seduces the audience, too.
Amy Nicolson, Variety
