Event organized by TIFF

"An outstanding achievement, perhaps the strongest British deebut since Lynne Ramsay’s Ratcatcher." — Little White Lies

Opening November 3, see Francis Lee's 'sensual, emotive and spiritual' God's Own Country Film.

🎥 PSA: Join us for a special screening on November 4 with an introduction with professor, journalist, and author Matthew Hayes.

Set in the remote farming country of North Yorkshire, Francis Lee's quietly assured feature debut focuses on Johnny (Josh O'Connor), who numbs the frustration of his lonely existence on his family's farm with nightly binge-drinking at the local pub and casual sex.

When a handsome Romanian migrant worker (Alec Secareanu) arrives to take up temporary work on the farm, Johnny suddenly finds himself having to deal with emotions he has never felt before. As the two begin working closely together during lambing season, an intense relationship starts to form, one which could change Johnny's life forever.
