A COMEDY-drama is the 'Valentine' offering this year from Keighley Film Club.

Good Luck to You, Leo Grande stars Emma Thompson as Nancy Stokes, a retired school teacher, who is yearning for some adventure and her plan involves hiring a young sex worker named Leo Grande, played by Daryl McCormack.

"Unexpectedly their relationship does not develop as Nancy anticipates," says Alan Watkinson, for the film club.

"Review site Rotten Tomatoes rates the film at 93 per cent, with one reviewer describing it as 'an unexpected gem that unfolds almost entirely through conversation. The film never stagnates but thrives through its palpable chemistry between the couple as it navigates the themes of sexuality, self discovery and yearning for human connection'."

Good Luck to You, Leo Grande – written by Katy Brand, and directed by Sophie Hyde – picked up numerous awards and nominations.

The film has a 15 certificate and running time of one hour 37 minutes.

Its club screening is at the Picture House, in North Street, on Sunday, February 18, at 6pm.

The programme also includes a short film, Imagine If Black Boys Just Smiled at Each Other. Written and directed by Kenton Thomas, its stars include Jarreau Benjamin.
