The movie tells the story of the growing relationship between in isolated, young Yorkshire farmer, and the Romanian worker brought in to help him during the lambing season.
Lady MacBeth picked up the most awards overall though, with five, including Best Screenplay for Alice Birch, Best Actress for Florence Pugh and Most Promising Newcomer for Naomie Ackie. Armando Iannucci’s The Death of Stalin meanwhile picked up four awards. The only category of the night open to non-UK films, Best International Independent Film, was won by Get Out.
Although God’s Own Country is seen as an outsider for nominations in the major international film awards, it’s got a brace of gongs on the film festival circuit, including at Sundance and Berlin. It will also hopefully get some love at the BAFTA FIlm Awards.
