A Powerfully intense and beautiful romance with shades of Brokeback Mountain
A Young farmer struggles to come to terms with his sexuality until a Romanian migrant worker that arrives to help for lambing season opens his mind. This is an intense, challenging yet beautiful drama that begs to be watched. Similar in its themes to Brokeback Mountain, it explores gay sexuality with hope in tough circumstance, with an isolating, turbulent backdrop of the Yorkshire countryside. The depiction of animal husbandry among the absence of human tenderness is interesting. There are narrative clichés and it's a tough watch but it's a deeply rewarding experience.
