Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "God's Own Country" weaves a rough magic from Joshua James Richards's biting cinematography and the story's slow, unsteady arc from bitter to hopeful.
Fresh: Toughness and tenderness duke it out to the bittersweet end of "God's Own Country," a transporting, wrenchingly acted love story set in the windswept wilds of northern England.
Fresh: In his debut feature, Lee has crafted a mature love story centered on an immature man facing the fear of even admitting that he needs love at all. It's a film to prize.
Fresh: A former actor himself, Lee directs his leads with subtle assurance.
