Johnny Saxby, a young, isolated Yorkshire farmer indulges in binge-drinking and casual sex to compensate for his everyday frustrations. But when a handsome Romanian worker is hired to help with the demands of lambing season, an unexpected relationship develops between the pair, leading Johnny to question the decisions he has made in his life. Sometimes referred to as the ‘British Brokeback’, this heady concoction of queer desire and the great outdoors may have a few surface similarities with the cowboy classic, but is in fact something altogether more gritty, intimate and, ultimately, romantic. Featuring two star-making turns from the impressive lead actors, Lee’s award-winning debut is an unforgettable ode to the possibilities of love.
