God’s Own Country
Johnny Saxby (Josh O’Connor) works long hours on his family’s remote farm in the north of England. He numbs the daily frustration of his lonely existence with nightly binge-drinking at the local pub and casual sex.
When a handsome Romanian migrant worker (Alec Secareanu) arrives to take up temporary work on the family farm, Johnny suddenly finds himself having to deal with emotions he has never felt before. As they begin working closely together during lambing season, an intense relationship starts to form which could change Johnny’s life forever.
Captivating and broodingly beautiful, God’s Own Country is the debut feature from writer/director Francis Lee. Bracingly open hearted, this is a thrillingly romantic story set in the heart of rural Yorkshire.
Both poignant and moving, this finely crafted British film features a host of standout performances.
"Combining gritty realism with poignancy, the result is a film that is exceptionally moving."
"Toughness and tenderness duke it out to the bittersweet end of "God's Own Country," a transporting, wrenchingly acted love story set in the windswept wilds of northern England."
"In his debut feature, Lee has crafted a mature love story centered on an immature man facing the fear of even admitting that he needs love at all. It's a film to prize."
