Reminiscent of Brokeback Mountain, Yorkshire-born director Francis Lee’s remarkable debut tells a story of love against alienation. Johnny Saxby is a taciturn young man living on a failing Yorkshire farm with his father and grandmother. Frustrated with life, he numbs his frustrations with drinking and casual sex. But when migrant worker Gheorghe arrives to help with lambing, an intense and transformative relationship is ignited between them. Perceptive and intelligent, with outstanding performances, God’s Own Country eschews sentimentality for realism to show that while the British countryside is beautiful, it can also be wild, lonely and estranging..
“A very British love story […] beautifully judged” **** Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
