God’s Own Country (15)

UK/2017/104mins/15. Dir: Francis Lee. With: Josh O'Connor, Alec Secareanu, Ian Hart, Gemma Jones

Johnny Saxby lives on a failing Yorkshire farm with his father and grandmother. Unhappy and frustrated with his life, he numbs his daily frustrations with binge drinking and casual sex. But when Gheorghe, a Romanian migrant worker, is brought in to help during lambing season, it ignites an intense relationship between them that sets Johnny on a new path. A perceptive and intelligent debut with outstanding performances and a meditation on the beautiful, wild and occasionally profoundly estranging rural landscape.

"Tough, sensual, unsentimental, with excellent lead performances… sharp, intelligent and emotionally generous."
The Guardian
