Movies Watched -- God's Own Country (2017)

Added on by C. Maoxian.

104 minute running time including credits, so well within the sacred 100 minute mark. A homosexual love story. Unhappy gay farm boy in Yorkshire living with his crippled Dad and Grandmother (Nan) ... then a gorgeous Romanian temporary worker comes to the farm, and he just happens to be gay too! Rolling in the mud ensues. (No longer the only gay in the village.)

I found the lout's transformation a little too pat, but yes, it's amazing what a romantic dinner with wood fire and tablecloth can do to change a man (even though Gheorgheous forgot to serve the lager in a glass instead of the can).

I squirmed through all the homosexual sex scenes, watching through splayed fingers, but the movie is well made, it's not terrible. Of course if you think homosexuality is an abomination or perversion or aberrant genetic disorder or whatever, you're not going to be thrilled. But I'm a little more open-minded and can sit through these things, especially when they're well-crafted, and not overly long. Yellow rating.
