Excellent movie. Great actors. Everything sounds so true.

Great movie that feels natural & real. I loved Gheorghiu who was such a good person and wished Johnny could have been less of a dick but he slightly redeemed himself in the end.

This was just so well done. It really should be separated from the gay film thread cause the storyline and handling of the characters really puts this in a well done indie film or drama. One of the best things I've watched on Kanopy in the last year for sure.

The best movie. I have seen it multiple times and never get tired of it.

Very well done, shall be looking forward to any other Frances Lee films. The theme was handled realistically without exploiting the coming out of two lonely individuals in a rustic environment. The first kiss scene was handled with gentleness, the characters were believable in their ...Read more

Love this movie. Seen it twice so far. Can't wait to see it again this time with subtitles. It's Yorkshire you know. Don't know what these people are saying. More wonderful even that Call Me By Your Name.

Absolutely beautiful movie. One of my favorites. This is my third time watching and I always tear up at the end.

Very thought-provoking. I highly recommend this film for anyone who is interested in character studies and watching people evolve into who they are going to become.

Please don't compare this to Brokeback. They take place at very different times in history for gay men. Both well-done and moving films.

Brilliant! There aren't many movie I watch twice but this will be one of them.

A wonderful, well-acted and well-filmed movie although there are many questions left unanswered. Because of the country setting, I suppose the comparisons to Brokeback will be inevitable but BBM had layers upon layers of mythological references this movie doesn't have so it's unfair to ...Read more

Wonderful and somewhat poignant coming of age story. Well-acted, tho I just didn't feel the chemistry between the two men.

The two men weren't brought up to reveal their emotions too openly so I think the reticence was appropriate. I never heard the word "love" mentioned once. The closest approach was when John found Gheorghiu at the truck farm and he did explicitly say he needed to be with Gheorghiu.

Wow, what an amazing movie. I wish I had the words to describe the specific melancholy yet heartfelt warmth this movie gives. Very glad I decided to watch it.

This is one of the best movies I've seen in years. I suppose comparisons to Brokeback Mountain are inevitable, but I think this movie is much better made.

The storytelling is highly visual, multilayered, and perfectly timed. The characters all affect each other in interesting ways, ...Read more

I agree completely with every word. Brokeback Mountain should have been this movie.

The short story BBM SHOULD have been this film, God's Own Country. BBM as a movie was ruined, I think, by having way too much kow-towing to straight sensibilities.

I'm excited to see what Francis Lee does next. I think this is his first feature, and he's already outdone Ang Lee.

A wonderful love story that is acted so well that you feel like the actors are really in love with each other. Raw emotions and intimate moments paired with long camera shots that doesn't rush the audience, but rather gives you a chance to sit with the deep feelings playing out in front of ...Read more
