God's Own Country

God's Own Country ★★★★½

i loved this so much. the use of silence to express emotions was more impactful than any of the dialogue and the actors did this so well. The characters had proper character development - it was a joy to see Johnny mature and grow out of his habits and take control of his life. This was genuinely just a stunning love story between two men that actually had a happy ending and didn’t break my heart with a 2 minute shot of one of them crying in front of a fire soundtracked to Sufjan Stevens.
