Such a good interviewer! Thoughtful questions, she’s definitely done research into her subjects and topics. I hope I will be able to see more interviews from her!

I found the film wonderful. One of the first British film that focused on the desire of women over the age of 55 being worthy of attention. Most British/American film focus on the aged and withered older woman, but this had a European flavour that showed the beauty of a women throughout the ageing process. Darryl is a great actor and will go far, he was gorgeous, and calm on screen. The film showed that older women are sensual and worthy of pleasure. I loved the film it was 5*
Olivia Marks, you are to be congratulated on your interview. Intelligent, insightful, well-articulated, thoughtful and thought-provoking questions throughout, drawing equally thoughtful and intelligent answers from two superb actors. Ms Thompson, of course, should be enshrined as the National Treasure that she is. Daryl McCormack is destined, I feel, to be counted among the greats. Thank you, Olivia, for the insights your questions elicited from these two.
what a wonderful interview! i appreciate this interviewer's style, the questions she chose to ask, and the way she interacted with the actors. and i loved hearing emma thompson's takes on the way culture, society and religion have negatively shaped women's relationships with their bodies and with the concept of pleasure. :)

This interviewer needs to be... given a million promotions. I love watching any interview with Emma however this interview is so deep, insightful, intriguing, and the list could go on. I hope to see more from her.

Fun interview, I liked that she asked different questions. Loved this movie so much! Loved the performances by Emma and Daryl. Daryl is gorgeous but really brings a performance of generosity and real chemistry with Emma, which frankly doesn't always happen. Just can't wait to see what he does next! I will be watching! I thought it was hilarious that when Daryl says he doesn't like bad breath each of them subtly pulls away from each other so they're not breathing near each other! So funny! Also I know a 50 some year-old woman who has never had an orgasm even by herself so this idea is not out in left field. Thank you Katy Brand, Sophie Hyde, Emma and Daryl for this beautiful film! I would love to see all of you get Academy Award noms! Would be well-deserved!

The characters connection between them was so visible. I adore Emma's work for so long and her performance with this wonderful actor was stellar. I want to see more from Daryl McCormack for sure!

I watched this movie 2x and I'm going to watch again. The intimacy between them was so great. I liked that you didn't see the sex till the end the chemistry was so great. Leo was so understanding of how to direct her to help her get out of own head
I love this interview! The movie was great, I watched it today and that's why I searched for interviews.
Glad that I found this one, they are so natural <3 and the questions are very good. I'm going to watch the movie again this weekend.

I started a Hulu account mainly to watch this movie. The promo pulled me in. I have watched it 7 times now which is completely unusual for me. There are only a handful of classics I have watched more than once. I am such a critic of acting so I feel the cast and crew deserve any of the awards they may receive for this one.

I will sign up to see Emma & Daryl reteamed in anything! Such amazing chemistry. Swap out Kevin Hart and The Rock in whatever's next for them and I'm there.
Very thoughtful, tasteful movie. Only problem I had with it is that at her age, and this being his profession, the word condom/protection, as far as I can remember, was never once mentioned. Other than that, lovely film 🤗💞 Emma is wonderful and fun, as usual, and Daryl is fine. Good job.

I watched this last night as a random find. Afterwards, whatever I felt asked me to put on my sports kit and go for a long walk. And I did. I walked and I walked with each step far away from the familiar. I guess because what I just watched was a very unfamiliar kindness. Then I walked back. Happy and no more tears.
