It’s Episode 64! John and Harry from the Beyond the Box Set podcast join us to review John’s choice Gods Own Country.

This 2017 film set in Yorkshire (get it?!) is a modern love story between a young disillusioned, laddish young farm Johnny and Gheorghe, a Romanian migrant hired to help out on the farm during lambing season.

Cruelly overshadowed by the success and acclaim of Call Me By Your Name despite the critical acclaim Gods Own Country didn’t have the same reach or audience – this is criminal.

Starring the beautiful rolling hills of Yorkshire and wonderful performances from its two stars Josh O’Connor and Alec Secarean Gods Own Country is an earthy, slow burning film about passion, family, things unspoken and intimacy. It’s also a fascinating portrait of modern rural life in England.


Unsurprisingly Gods Own Country scores highly across the categories (near perfect in recommendability 5,5,5 and Kobi’s 4.5!). Only let down by repeat viewing and that we wish we’d had the chance to see it on the big screen. Overall a very strong 4.15. Highly recommended.
