Beautifully photographed in the Yorkshire countryside during lambing season, God's Own Country depicts the severity and isolation of farm life for a 3-generation family. The ensemble cast are brilliant giving balanced performances which never overstate their connections or feelings for one another. While there is very little dialogue, there is considerable depth to the story and this audience member took away a lot from the story. This is a film which could crudely be labelled a gay coming out film but it's much more than that. It's a film about family relationships, dad and son tensions, the expression of intimacy and the acceptance of those who are often marginalised in our society. To say more would be to spoil the power of the movie.
