Picturehouse takes Sundance hit 'God's Own Country' for UK

6 February 2017 10:54 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Yorkshire-set drama will have its European premiere at the Berlinale.

Picturehouse Entertainment has acquired Sundance buzz title God’s Own Country for the UK.

Premiering in Sundance’s World Dramatic Competition last month, where it scooped the best directing jury prize for debutant Francis Lee, the Yorkshire-set drama is set to have its European premiere in Berlin’s Panorama section on Feb 14.

As reported by Screen, UK-based sales outfit Protagonist Pictures picked up the film in December 2016 and is representing world rights.

God’s Own Country stars former Screen Star of Tomorrow Josh O’Connor as a solitary young sheep farmer who numbs his daily frustrations with binge drinking and casual sex. The arrival of a Romanian migrant worker (played by newcomer Alec Secareanu) ignites an intense relationship that sets Johnny on a new path.

Co-starring are Ian Hart (Urban Hymn) and Gemma Jones (Sense And Sensibility). The film is produced by Manon Ardisson and Jack Tarling »
