Good luck to you, Leo Grande is on of the 82 movies that will screen at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival but unfortunately Sundance 2022 turns into Virtual Festival last minute due to the increase in the transmissibility of covid.
Sundance Festival is the largest independent film festival in the United States and acts as a showcase for new work from American and international independent filmmakers.
The next edition will be the 45th and it will go virtual for the second time.
Cornerstone has unveiled the first look of Emma Thompson and Daryl McCormack in Sophie Hyde’s “Good Luck to You, Leo Grande”.
Alessandro Glorio, of Café Gelato in Norwich, met Emma Thompson and Daryl McCormick, the stars of the film Good Luck To You, Leo Grande. They both enjoyed a well earned treat of Italian gelato during the shot of the new film.
The man was delighted to start a conversation in Italian with Emma.
Mr Glorio said: “The day of the filming we had an unexpected surprise, Emma Thompson came in. There was another surprise, she started to speak with us in a very good Italian.
“We immediately felt at ease with her, a lovely easy going person and a really expert of Italian gelato. Adorable.”
Dear Emmaholics, as you know Emma is busy shooting the new film Good luck to you Leo Grande in which she plays a middle-aged woman in search of adventures and runs into a young man who calls himself a sex-therapist.
The name of the young actor who should play the part of 20-year-old Leo is not yet known. Who would you prefer in this role? Among the young actors I really like Fionn Whitehead, who has already worked brilliantly with Emma in The children act and I also like Thomas Brodie Sangster.
Come on, let’s bet for fun: who do you think will play the role of Leo?
Make a prediction on our Facebook page about who will be the male protagonist of the film 🙂
Emma Thompson will star in the sex comedy “Good Luck To You, Leo Grande”, directed by Sophie Hyde and written by Katy Brand. She plays Nancy Stokes, a 55 year-old widow who is yearning for some adventure. She hires Leo Grande, a sex worker in his early twenties for a night of bliss.
The film will go into production in London in early 2021.
