God’s Own Country

Dir. Francis Lee. UK, 2017. 1h 45m. Starring Josh O'Connor, Alec Secareanu, Gemma Jones, Ian Hart, Naveed Choudhry, Stefan Dermendjiev.

A beautifully shot and unsentimentally told love story about the bond between a farmer’s son and a Romanian hired hand. Francis Lee’s directorial debut is a quiet and moving depiction of love and loneliness set in the rugged rural landscape of Yorkshire.

'You'll find yourself getting teary a week later - a potent, haunting meditation on the soul-stirring significance of being open to love.’ ★★★★★ Trevor Johnston, Little White Lies

’The relationship between the two men isn't the only romance in the film, as the camera slowly falls in love with rural Yorkshire.’ Alex Davidson, Sight and Sound
