MIFF: God's Own Country

Romance Drama


 

A lonely Yorkshire farmer is holding a farm together with his ageing parents, when a farm hand from Romania joins them and an intense relationship is founded.

The landscape is rugged and unforgiving, and everything here is struggling to survive - the farm, and the son without a future. Life is gruelling and pared back to only what is essential. How a movie experience that is so captivating is extracted from such restrained elements is a triumph for both the cinematographer and the director. The result is a magnificent story of the discovery of being worthy of love... and it pleased the Lord.
