Searchlight Lands Emma Thompson Sex Comedy ‘Leo Grande’

The movie will stream exclusively on Hulu in the U.S.

Searchlight Pictures has acquired the U.S. Rights to the Emma Thompson starring feature Good Luck to You, Leo Grande.

The film, which is directed by Sophie Hyde from a script by Katy Brand, will stream exclusively on Hulu in the U.S.

The logline for the film reads: “Stokes (Thompson), a retired school teacher, is yearning for some adventure, and some sex. Good sex. And she has a plan, which involves hiring a young sex worker named Leo Grande.”

Break-out Daryl McCormack co-stars as Grande in Good Luck to You, Leo Grande, a likable British comedy-drama.

The movie was produced by Debbie Gray of Genesius Pictures and Adrian Politowski of Align.


Ahead of the festival’s January 20 start, Searchlight picked up Fresh, which stars Daisy Edgar-Jones and Sebastian Stan, setting a March 4 release date on Hulu.
