It's Emma Thompson's emotional side that stands out in "Good Luck to You, Leo Grande."

The Hulu debut of this funny and sensitive two-hander is understandable.

She clearly ambivalently seeks out the services of a sex worker played by Daryl McCormack, Leo Grande.

Despite his calm attempts to reassure her, her biography gradually spills out.

It including the death of her husband two years earlier.

She approaches the whole exercise with a very clinical sense of curiosity that can be very, very funny.

In spite of the absurdity of this arrangement, she has the option to back out at any time. 

While "Leo Grande" can easily be jokey or sentimental, those pitfalls are avoided.

As a small-scale project, the arrival via Hulu is understandable but we hope Thompson's work here isn't overlooked or forgotten.
