Escape to the heart of the broodingly beautiful Yorkshire Pennines with this award-winning debut feature from writer/director Francis Lee. Hailed as the UK’s answer to Brokeback Mountain, God’s Own Country is a thrilling love story about two men seeking warmth, connection and belonging in the harsh wilderness that surrounds them. Featuring a host of standout performances, this film has been marked as one this this year’s essential big screen experiences.
A young sheep farmer 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. But when a handsome Romanian migrant worker arrives to take up temporary work on the family farm, Johnny suddenly finds himself having to deal with emotions he has never felt before.
