In Francis Lee’s breathtaking debut, a brutish, hard-drinking young farmer is softened by his blossoming love for a Romanian migrant worker.  Set against the sweeping landscapes of Yorkshire, this visually astonishing film has already caused a sensation at film festivals around the globe.  While offering a detailed portrait of rural life and all its cold realities, God’s Own Country remains a hopeful tale, the story of a young man’s journey toward self-acceptance and joy. ~ Mark Thiedeman
