Johnny Saxby (Josh O’Connor) works long hours on his family’s remote farm in the north of England, numbing his daily frustration with nightly binge drinking at the local pub and casual sex. But when a handsome Romanian migrant worker (Alec Secareanu) arrives to take up temporary work, Johnny slowly discovers there is much more to life than he had ever imagined, including hope, love and tenderness.
Set against a stunning Yorkshire backdrop, God’s Own Country is the award-winning debut feature film from British writer/director Francis Lee. Poignant, romantic and unforgettable, the film features standout performances from an impressive cast.
Touching on issues of contemporary rural life and a young generation’s aspirations for building a better future, Lee reveals the strength and intimacy that can flourish in even the most seemingly isolated and hardened of human spirits. Critically lauded and presented at films festivals worldwide, this is guaranteed to be one of the most celebrated and significant films of the year.
