Good Luck To You, Leo Grande trailer showcases Emma Thompson

What do you want out of life? For most people, the answer boils down to something that will make them happy. It’s the definition of happiness that changes from person to person. In the upcoming film, Good Luck To You, Leo Grande, Emma Thompson plays an older woman named Nancy whose life has been unfulfilled. Following the death of her husband, Nancy yearns for the kind of sexual experiences that she has only been able to fantasize about. For once in her life, Nancy wants to be happy. And that’s where a sex worker named Leo Grande (Daryl McCormack) enters the picture.

In the new trailer for Good Luck To You, Leo Grande, Nancy tells Leo all about the positions and activities that she wants to partake in, even if it makes her blush. Leo is notably OK with all of it, but he seems particularly skilled at finding ways for Nancy to become more comfortable with both herself and her desires.

Here’s the official description of the movie, courtesy of Searchlight Pictures.

“In Good Luck To You, Leo Grande, two-time Academy Award winner Emma Thompson (Love Actually) embodies the candor and apprehension of retired teacher Nancy Stokes, and newcomer Daryl McCormack (Peaky Blinders) personifies the charisma and compassion of sex worker Leo Grande. As Nancy embarks on a post-marital sexual awakening and Leo draws on his skills and charm, together they find a surprising human connection.”

Isabella Laughland also stars in the movie as Becky, with Charlotte Ware and Carina Lopes as a pair of waitresses. The cast appears to be deliberately small in order to focus on Nancy and Leo’s story.

New Sonos Ace wireless headphones look amazing, but some fans may be disappointed
Sonos Ace in soft white.

It’s official. After years of speculation — and many, many leaks — Sonos has debuted its first set of wireless headphones. The $449 Sonos Ace are available for preorder now and will be available starting June 5 in two matte-finish colors: black and soft white.

The Ace are loaded with the kind of tech we’ve become accustomed to seeing on flagship wireless headphones: active noise cancellation, transparency, spatial audio with head tracking, hi-res and lossless audio, and Bluetooth Multipoint. And that makes them head-to-head competitors with the likes of Sony, Bose, and Apple’s top headphones.

Apple AirPods Max -- $450, was $549

The AirPods Max are Apple's first attempt at a set of over-the-ear headphones. They got a lot of things right. We love these headphones, even when compared against some audiophile options that prioritize sound quality. The AirPods Max have awesome noise cancelling. Everything Apple learned with the earbud-style AirPods works even better with the cup style of the AirPods Max. Along with great ANC comes a great transparency mode. With a twist of the Max's massive knob, you'll go from complete silence to feeling like you're not wearing headphones at all. The audio on phone calls is great as well, and they pair better with the iPhone than any non-Apple headphones could ever hope to.
