Early in the year, my friend H invited me to watch Good Luck To You, Leo Grande courtesy of the Sundance Film Festival. I had come to it with some trepidation — “older white woman engages with younger person of colour sex worker” has certain connotations in the culture and I was apprehensive. It's a pretty great movie, as it turns out. Funny and touching and smart. And the performances! It feels very much like a lockdown movie: largely one location, a cast of three (to be clear, the two leads take up about 98% of the running time), but even so, a whole universe opens up in that one location and between those two. I recommend this wholeheartedly.
How many times can I say Yes! while reading? Turns out three. Thank you Bim. Missed ya!
