Watch Trailer

Palace Cinemas & the Cunard British Film Festival cordially invites you to a Preview Event for the critically-adored Good Luck to You, Leo Grande, with a very special introduction with the star of the film, Emma Thompson, live in person – along with fellow star, Daryl McCormack & Director, Sophie Hyde!    

This special event includes a glass of prosecco on arrival!

With a fearlessly raw performance from two-time Academy Award winner Emma Thompson, Good Luck To You, Leo Grande provides a refreshing (and hilarious) perspective on sexuality that’s charming, authentic and thought-provoking.

Nancy Stokes (Emma Thompson), a retired school teacher and widow, is yearning for some adventure, some human connection, and some sex. Good sex. 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: she will find adventure with a sex worker named Leo Grande, charismatically played by newcomer Daryl McCormack (Peaky Blinders).

An empowering portrayal of middle-aged sexuality that’s all too rare, don’t miss your chance to see its brilliant cast and director live on stage!

“Thompson has always been a terrific actor, but she reaches a new plane here, a place where her vulnerability as a person and her confidence as a performer mesh into something glorious..”

– TIME Magazine

“Emma Thompson is truly better than ever and brings to life a complex and evolving person with humor, grace and a sharp edge. McCormack, meanwhile, is a star in the making.”

– Associated Press
