God's Own Country

On Demand
This is an online event · Online
A lonely young shepherd works for his hard-bitten parents in rural Yorkshire, and God's Own Country's cinematography captures the coldness of the light on moors. When Johnny's father suffers a stroke, the family hires a young Romanian immigrant named Gheorghe to help during lambing season. Something unexpected happens: At first resentful of the intruder, Johnny develops feelings for his kind-hearted co-worker. Director Francis Lee (himself a Yorkshire native) teases out a heartfelt romance in this bleak landscape; God's Own Country, his 2017 film, has earned comparisons to Moonlight (as well as, inevitably, Brokeback Mountain).
