God's Own Country

The rugged landscapes of the Yorkshire dales provide a tempestuous backdrop to a wrenching tale of toxic masculinity and forbidden love, impeccably-crafted by first-time filmmaker Francis Lee. Economic in scale and speech, this portrait of rural life is, instead, rich in detail, texture and emotion.





Repressed and depressed young farmer Johnny (Josh O’Connor) distracts himself from the drudgery of daily life with binge-drinking and casual sex. But when he meets Romanian migrant worker Gheorghe (Alec Secareanu), new emotions and possibilities are born.
