God's Own Country

11 yrs 104 minutes 2017 7.6

After his father is hit by a stroke, Johnny is forced to take more responsibility over the work at the Yorkshire Farm. The emotionally disconnected and unhappy Johnny suffers and hides his pain with drinking and temporary relationships with different men. As the prime season of the farm approaches, the father uses the Romanian Gheorghe to help with the work, and during their hard workdays together on the fields, they get closer and the strong spark that lights up between them allows Johnny to imagine a brighter future. In Dagens nyheter, Helena Lindblad compares the movie to Brokeback Mountain, but believes that God's own country wants to "be a more contemporary, everyday-realistic homage to the changing modern man who dares take risks and no longer needs to be seduced by a damn environment." She scores 4 of 5 to the film that won prizes for best director and actor at the Stockholm Film Festival and is nominated for a BAFTA for this year's best British film.
