God's Own Country
‘The storytelling leaves you powerfully involved.’ - Sydney Morning Herald
Young Johnny Saxby resents toiling on his family farm in the bleak Yorkshire hills. Angry and alone, he lives for the weekend. But when Romanian seasonal worker Gheorghe joins the farm, this hard heart begins to soften.
The rural Yorkshire setting is distinct, and you’ll recognise right away the beauty of Johnny’s gradual emotional dawn in this tender, authentic and extraordinarily moving film.
