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.
One of the most critically-acclaimed films of the year, GOD’S OWN COUNTRY comes to Rainbow Visions after winning major awards at festivals such as Sundance, Frameline, Berlin, Edinborough, and Inside Out.
