A huge critical hit as this past year’s Sundance Film Festival, described by some critics as the British answer to Brokeback Mountain, God’s Own Country is coming to UK cinema screens in September. This debut feature from director Francis Lee is shaping up to one of the year’s best LGBTQ films. Starring Josh O’Connor (Cinderella, Florence Foster Jenkins) and Alec Secareanu (a relative newcomer in a breakout role), the film tells the story of a rural romance in the West Yorkshire countryside.
We’ll have to wait a little longer for it in the United States, where the film will be distributed by Orion Pictures and Samuel Goldwyn Films. In the meantime, there is a new trailer to tide us over. Check it our below along with the official synopsis.
