Sophie Hyde’s “Good luck, Leo Grande” (2022)

Emma Thompson as an aging [former?] teacher seeking a new launch to her life.

Intimate courageous film on fear and loneliness. Well shot, lit and does indeed remind us of Covid isolation. But this is not about Covid. This is about the invisible women who are not that old, whose children are off and independent, who feel they lost something in the rush of the last 30 odd years.

Strong, powerful and does not pretend to be positioned in a timeless era. It is in the here and now with mobile phones going off at the least appropriate moments.

A big recommend from me. Go watch it!
