“Earnest, honest, accurate, and unrelenting, this is the true romance of the countryside, dung-splattered boots and all.” – Richard Whittaker, Austin Chronicle
“Combining gritty realism with poignancy, the result is a film that is exceptionally moving.” – Bruce Demara, Toronto Star
“This is not a movie about coming out and the collateral damage that ensues. It’s a universal tale about giving yourself over to love, even when you seem hopelessly broken.” – David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle
Winner of a number of awards, including Best Director at Sundance and Best Film at the British Independent Film Awards, this new British film has been widely acclaimed by both critics and audiences.
Johnny Saxby (Josh O’Connor) works long hours in brutal isolation on his family’s remote farm in the north of England. He numbs the daily frustration of his lonely existence 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 family farm, Johnny suddenly finds himself having to deal with emotions he has never felt before. An intense relationship forms between the two which could change Johnny’s life forever.
