Reminiscent of Brokeback Mountain, Yorkshire-born director Francis Lee’s remarkable debut follows Johnny, a taciturn young man living on a failing Yorkshire farm. Frustrated, he numbs himself with binge drinking and casual sex until migrant worker Gheorghe arrives; and a transformative attraction is ignited between them. Lee’s perceptive and intelligent film eschews sentimentality, showing the British countryside to be beautiful but also wild, lonely and estranging.
