"Uplifting, powerfully emotional and beautifully observed.. this could be the best British film of the year" ★★★★ -
Matthew Turner, i News
 

“A beautifully judged, unsentimental study from first time director Francis Lee." 
★★★★Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian


Hailed as the UK’s answer to Brokeback Mountain, Francis Lee’s remarkable debut feature tells a story that is nevertheless anything but derivative.

Johnny Saxby, a taciturn young man, lives on a failing Yorkshire farm with his father and grandmother. Unhappy and frustrated with his life, he numbs his life with binge drinking and casual sex. But when Gheorghe, a Romanian migrant worker, is brought in to help during lambing season, it ignites an intense relationship. A perceptive and intelligent film that captures the beautiful countryside also as wild, lonely and profoundly estranging.
