God's Own Country (MA 15+)

God's Own Country movie poster

Johnny works long hours on his family’s remote hill farm. Isolated and frustrated, he numbs the daily frustration of his lonely existence with nightly binge-drinking at the local pub and casual sex. When Gheorghe, a handsome Romanian, arrives to take up temporary work on the family property, Johnny suddenly finds himself having to deal with emotions he has never felt before. An intense relationship forms between the two, which could change Johnny’s life forever. Francis Lee’s striking debut film employs near documentary elements, frank nudity, explicit sex scenes, and moving performances by its two lead actors to tell an ultimately optimistic and powerful story.
