Someone sound the brilliant new movie klaxon, because Good Luck To You, Leo Grande just shot straight to the top of our 'must-watch list'. Here's what we know about the project so far, from release date to cast and storyline.

What is Good Luck To You, Leo Grande about?

The drama-comedy follows Nancy Stokes, a retired widow who feels unsatisfied from her married sex life (having never had an orgasm), so hires a charming younger sex worker called Leo Grande.

While she's initially hoping for a single night of pleasure - and has a list of sex acts she'd like to get through - the pair eventually form an unlikely and lovely bond, leading them each on a journey of self-discovery.
