No. 13 (2018) God's Own Country February 7th.

Film No. 13 (2018) February 7th.  8.00 PM  PIAF Film Festival, The Pines Joondalup.

"It's beautiful here, but lonely; no?". (Gheorghe talks to Johnny about life on a farm in Yorkshire).

This powerful, earthy love story opens our eyes to a workspace where one persons feeling of loneliness and inevitable hopelessness can change in an instant when the company of another is unexpectedly, extremely comforting. Is God's Own Country a comment on the Brexit situation in the U.K.? A resourceful Rumanian farm-hand arrives one Spring in cool Yorkshire to assist Johnny Saxby with the day to day chores on the family farm. Johnny is a binge drinking, loyal son and grandson to Martin, recently crippled by a stroke (Ian Hart) and Deirdre (Gemma Jones). Johnny is in need of a saviour. Gheorghe (Alec Secareanu) is every bit the breath of warm air needed by this sad family. Director Francis Lee breaks from the shackles of safe T.V. drama to deliver a powerful but risky film. An award winner deserving of every accolade. 10GUMS.
