Acclaimed director Francis Lee and actor Josh O’Connor join us to introduce their passionate, Yorkshire-set love story between two male farm workers.

Certificate 15
Duration 104 mins 
Film starts approximately 21.00


Local lad Johnny (Josh O’Connor, soon to be Prince Charles in The Crown) and Romanian migrant Gheorghe (Alec Secareanu), tend to the land and look after the sheep during lambing season, forging a closeness that gradually leads to love and mutual deep-rooted changes that help each of them come to terms with their place in the world.

Director Francis Lee delivers one of the great debut films of recent years, ensuring we experience the raw elements and turbulent emotions that roil throughout the film. It helps that he has two such fine actors as O’Connor and Secareanu, who eloquently express everything they feel even when words fail them.

For all its independence and individualism, this is at heart a story that’s easy to fall for; Lee draws on films as unlikely as An Officer and a Gentleman, The Bridges of Madison County and Working Girl to create a classic, timeless and ultimately simple love story.

Audio-described headsets are available for this screening. To reserve a headset online, add on to your order when purchasing tickets.

Composer, producer and musical performer Claire M Singer will set the mood with a live DJ set from 19.00

God's Own Country Official Trailer

"This sexy, thoughtful, hopeful film ... advances a pro-immigration subtext that couldn't be more timely amid the closing borders of Brexit-era Britain."

Variety

"A stunning love story that in its finest moments is pure poetry."
