Trivia

The film was in the editing process when the Brexit referendum took place. Interestingly, the only prejudice the two lovers encounter is some xenophobia in the local pub towards Georghe, something which many felt fueled the Brexit vote. If anything, the referendum made this poignant love story between two men from different countries more relevant. See more »

Raw, dark, and bleak and yet profoundly beautiful, fluid and sensual.
12 October 2017 | by Bgeisler63See all my reviews

Director Francis Lee is at the top of his game. Superb visual storytelling with minimal dialogue. Emotional responses are earned by the story/performances as opposed to musical cues. The film is raw, dark,and bleak and yet profoundly beautiful, fluid and sensual. There is this unifying earthiness throughout that connects the characters to the land and their animals that I have never seen in a film. The authenticity of the depiction of life on a farm is incredible. The actors are all amazing and the story avoids all clichés. The emotional arch of the main character is astounding and yet totally believable. This is one of those films I saw days ago and can not get out of my head. Do not miss it.
