God’s Own Country has gained a lot of fans since its much-praised debut at last year’s Sundance Film Festival. Over the past 12 months it’s won numerous awards, including the prestigious Best British Independent Film at the British Independent Film Awards. It’s also nominated for Outstanding British Film of the Year at the upcoming BAFTA Film Awards, while the film’s lead actor, Josh O’Connor, is up for the EE BAFTA Rising Star gong.
God’s Own Country is releasing on Blu-ray and DVD in the UK from 29th January, and to celebrate we’ve teamed up with Lionsgate and Picturehouse Entertainment to give away five copies of the film on Blu-ray.
The film is a contemporary tale of self-discovery and emotional-awakening set on the sheep farming hills of rural England. Johnny Saxby (Josh O’Connor; The Riot Club, The Durrells) works long hours 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. But 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. As they begin working closely together during lambing season, an intense relationship starts to form which could change Johnny’s life forever.
