Emma Thompson (The Children Act, Sense and Sensibility) stars as Nancy, retired and widowed, and on a journey to find connection, acceptance and sex she’s missed out on all these years.
Nancy has spent her life nurturing students as a school teacher and as a devoted wife to her late husband, but has yet to dedicate those qualities to herself. Enter charming young sex worker ‘Leo Grande’, whom Nancy hires to explore her needs, and ideally fulfill them.
Over the course of three afternoons in a Norwich hotel, Nancy and Leo become intimately acquainted: the sex is a given and boosts her confidence all round, but the unexpected conversation that flows in each meeting gives way to a shift in power dynamics.
An uplifting, hilarious and hearwarming comedy drama from director Sophie Hyde (Animals, In My Blood It Runs).
