Johnny Saxby has turned into a sullen young man in needing to take on the proverbial and literal heavy lifting at the family's sheep and cattle farm in Northern England following his father Martin Saxby's stroke, which has rendered him physically disabled, and he requiring a cane to walk still with difficulty. Johnny has taken on this role without much passion and thus without placing much effort into it, especially as Martin is still looking over his shoulder at every turn. Johnny relieves his boredom by drinking to excess at the pub - he getting to the point of needing to vomit every time - and, gay, having casual, indiscriminate and passionless sex with whichever bloke he meets. During the busy birthing season, Martin hires Gheorghe Ionescu, a Romanian migrant farm worker, for a one week period. There is an immediate animosity between Johnny and Gheorghe largely over dealing with the stereotype Johnny has of all Romanians being shifty Romanis aka gypsies. In reality, Gheorghe, who grew up on such a farm back home, knows his farming well and places much care in it unlike Johnny. While Johnny and Gheorghe are away on a several day trip to work on a remote part of the farm, their animosity leads to some physicality between them which further leads to some sexual tension and ultimately a sexual relationship. In their solitude, their relationship turns more intimate, something that has never happened before for Johnny. Gheorghe, who is more experienced in true matters of the heart than Johnny, knows the current status of their relationship is unsustainable, something that Johnny may never get a point to in never having been there. Their relationship however does give Johnny a better understanding of how to live in his path on the farm with his parents especially in the circumstance of Martin's poor and deteriorating health.

This movie is a story of love and forgiveness. Some may call it a love story, but I call it a story of God's love for us all. I didn't see this movie before it was on television and I wasn't sure what to expect. But I was hooked from the start. This movie touched me in a way I can't explain. The acting is wonderful, especially from the lead actor. The chemistry between him and his partner was quite convincing. The music is good and the cinematography is great. This movie is one of the best movies I have ever seen. There is something about this movie that touches you and you can't help but love it. If you have not seen this movie then please, please, please see it. It is something that I will never forget. I gave this movie a 10 out of 10.

This movie has a great message and very well written. I am a hard core Christian and was genuinely moved by this movie. This movie is uplifting, exciting, and really a good family movie. The actors were excellent and you could really feel the emotions they were going through. The movie has a very unique plot, very different from what most people would expect, and it's very inspiring to me. I really loved this movie and it's been on my top movies list for a long time now. This movie is great for everyone and can be enjoyed by people of all ages. I would recommend this movie to anyone, just remember to think positive. Go out and see this movie and enjoy it!

I saw this movie with a group of friends and we all enjoyed it. We were all in a few cars in the parking lot and had a few laughs. It is a movie you have to see. It is about what you do and how you do it and how God affects it. This movie is a definite must see for anyone that has a spiritual side to their life. I strongly recommend seeing this movie, I am looking forward to seeing it again and again. This movie is just a wonderful movie to watch with your family and friends. I think the young people who saw this movie did enjoy it, but I think the older people who saw it enjoyed it just as much. It is a story of God. This movie is a must see.

This movie made me cry. As many other reviewers have mentioned, it is a pretty accurate portrayal of the civil rights movement in the '60s, and while I don't agree with the tactics used by the main characters, I can't deny the impact that the movie had on me. This movie was nominated for three Academy Awards, and won all of them. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to be reminded of how a story can be told, and how much power can be wielded through the eyes of the main character. Also, I think the movie would be a good watch for anyone, no matter what their political ideology.

I have seen many Bollywood movies. I am a big fan of Bollywood. I love love love the music and acting. I think the director did an excellent job on the movie. Everyone should see this movie. I have seen this movie so many times and I still love it. I love the songs. I love the acting. I love the music. I am going to buy this movie for my family. I really love this movie.

I've watched this film over the past year and a half, it has been one of the most moving films I have ever watched. I hope to see it again sometime in the future.

I grew up in the 60's and was raised on the "War and Peace" series. I am now in my 50's and have read the whole series. All of the books were written by a very talented author who is now in the twilight of his life. I found this to be a very moving, but enjoyable movie. It was very touching and honest about the lives of people who were raised in a very different culture, but who had to live in a very different country and were caught in a very harsh environment. They were trying to survive and at the same time be in love. The acting in this movie was good, but it could have been better. There was a scene where Jimmy was about to make love to his wife, when he began to cry, and it was so sudden and sad. I never once felt for Jimmy, but felt his pain. The scene made me cry, but I didn't want to cry. I don't think I have ever cried at a movie. I think I have cried at most movies in my life. I recommend this movie to everyone who has not seen the book.

I have never seen the film or read the book, so I cannot say if it was made for the purpose of entertainment, but I am certain that it was not. The acting was superb and the direction was wonderful. It made me laugh, cry and at times, feel sad. I could relate to so many characters, the rich and the poor, the young and the old. I have seen many films, and always loved them, but this one was different, it made me feel what these characters were feeling and it made me feel their pain. I am truly glad I saw it, and I hope many people will see it as well.

I am no great fan of Meryl Streep's, but I found this film quite enjoyable. It had great suspense and was very well acted. There is some great dialog, and a good performance by Meg Ryan. The setting is beautiful and the acting is good, except for Meg Ryan's performance, which could have been better. The locations are also very interesting. I give this film 10 stars.

I've been a huge fan of the movie for years. I can't believe that it has been around so long, but it is truly something special. The storyline is very simple. Two brothers from very different backgrounds, the eldest being an alcoholic and the second a very religious but spiritually-minded individual. The film is about the journey of both brothers. There are many memorable scenes. I can't think of one where I didn't cry. It is a very beautiful film and I recommend it to everyone, especially for anyone who wants to be educated about the religious aspects of the Christian religion.

I am so glad that this movie has been released. I've always been a fan of Clint Eastwood, and this movie is his best yet. I've seen a few of his movies, and he is definitely one of my favorite actors. This movie has a great storyline, a great story line, and an amazing plot. I think the most shocking part of this movie is that it is based on a true story. The acting is superb. Kevin Costner did a great job. Some of the scenes are very intense and some are very quiet. I think it's a great movie to see when you're alone, and you need to get some rest and don't want to think about anything for awhile. I think you will enjoy this movie. I give this movie a 10/10.

It's not often that a movie has such an impact on me. I watched it because I was looking for a movie to watch while driving. The film moved me and I found myself on the edge of my seat. This movie left me in tears. The film has an amazing cast. The actors portraying Jesus, Paul, and John have been recognized for their work. The cinematography, writing, and directing are also incredible. The way that the movie is shown has a real impact on your emotions and it's really a shame that it was not recognized as a major motion picture. I can't recommend this film enough. It's a must see. If you haven't seen it, then please do so! I highly recommend it.

I am currently reading the book, and to say I am in love with it is an understatement. I could not put it down. It's been a while since I read it, but the book brought back all of the emotions I had when I first read it. The writing was so poetic and beautiful. The characters were so believable, and the interactions between the characters made me love and hate them, and I love how the characters were like they were drawn by the book. This movie was just as great. I am a very huge fan of the book, but when I saw the movie, I could not believe how great it was. I was amazed how much I had remembered about the book, and how I had such a strong emotional connection to it. I saw the movie in 3D, and I was not disappointed. I was surprised how good the 3D looked. There were so many emotions in the movie that you just had to look away and be shocked at the emotions you felt. I can't wait to see it again. This movie is a perfect date movie for all ages, and it is definitely a must see. I just wish there were more movies like this, because I feel like they are sorely needed. I hope there will be a sequel, because it is definitely something to be excited for. I can't wait to see it again!

I would like to congratulate the director on a beautiful piece of work. This movie was very well done. It was entertaining, emotional, and sad. I loved how the movie did not go the typical way in the "traditional" way. This movie was well acted and had a great message. There were many moving parts to this movie. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes movies about God. It was an amazing movie. If you have not seen this movie then you must go out and watch it. It will change your life. If you don't like God's Own Country then you should probably stay away. This movie is great. You should give it a try. I know I will.

It's rare that I see an indie film that I enjoy. I mean, most are terrible. This film is exceptional. It's not in the league of mainstream films and I appreciate that, but it's an amazing film. I can't believe people are giving this film negative reviews, it's amazing. I can't understand people being so uneducated as to the importance of this film. It's not a great film. It's not even an amazing film. It's a good film. It's a really good film. It's a film that, if you are able to sit through it, I think you will appreciate. I highly recommend this film. If you can get a chance to see it, I think you will really enjoy it.

I was lucky enough to see this movie at the Montreal International Film Festival. It was the first movie I saw in the festival and I've been waiting for the release of it for over a year now. I must say I was very impressed by this movie. The acting was very good and it was a great idea for this story. I was so happy to hear a Hollywood production team made this movie. I highly recommend this movie to everyone who is a fan of movies. This movie is something different from the usual Hollywood action packed movies. This movie has so many great parts and I would recommend it to everyone. I really hope you will see this movie soon!

This is my first review, so I'll try to be as unbiased as possible. I think this film is one of the best films I have ever seen. I don't know how anyone could not like this film, I think it's one of those films that one will never forget. I'll tell you what it is: it's the film that made me fall in love with the world. The film gives you a glimpse into the lives of ordinary people from different countries and cultures. The film is incredibly moving. I will never forget it. It really shows the real love people have for each other and how they would do anything to make each other happy. I believe that people can find happiness in anything, regardless of what their race, color or nationality is. What I love about the film is how the film portrays a picture of life in the 1800's. The film is extremely beautiful and it's amazing that it still looks good. The film has one of the best endings I have ever seen, it leaves you with a feeling of peace. I strongly recommend this film to all people who are interested in a love story or a documentary about a different culture.

This is the story of a young boy who is born to an Arab family in Egypt. His name is Mohammed and he comes to the U.S. to live with his Arab father. He does not understand the culture and religion of the Arab people and his mother is afraid to make him speak Arabic. She tries to have him learn the language and that he will take a job in a factory and she will get a better life. He goes to school but he does not get along with the other kids and he feels like an outsider. He does not understand the Arabic language and he has trouble with the girls. But at the same time he begins to learn and in the end he becomes a man. I thought this film was very moving. The part I thought was the most touching was when Mohammed tells his mother that he is a man and that he can do anything he wants. It was really touching. It made me think of how I felt when I was a little boy in Egypt. I was so ashamed that I could not speak the language and could not help people understand me. When I heard that the movie was being made I thought it was a really good idea and I was really glad that it was made. I was very moved by this film. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good movie.

The movie is a well-made. The acting is great. The movie shows how the problems that plague our society actually happen. The movie is a tragedy of the class system. It shows the side of the poor that you may not see in the news or in the news. It is not a happy movie. It is not a happy movie if you live in the class system. It shows how the lives of the people are controlled by the class system. The problems in the movie come from the poor. The movie shows how the rich will do anything to stay in their class. The poor are dependent on the rich and will do anything to stay in their class. The rich are the ones who have power and control. They control the poor and the poor depend on the rich. The poor are always there to be exploited and exploited. The rich will always control the poor. The rich will do anything to control the poor. The movie shows the problem in the United States and what the government is doing about it.

I'm a huge fan of Ryan Gosling. He has a stunning voice, and he's very talented. His performance in this movie is amazing. I was surprised to see him play a Catholic character. He really plays a typical high school student. His voice is perfect. I thought he was great. He has an amazing screen presence. The story is great, it tells you how far some people will go to survive, and how others will do whatever it takes to get their way. I love that it shows how much pressure these people are under, how much they fear the consequences of their actions, and how the lives they lead are very meaningful. The last scene is absolutely beautiful, it's the perfect ending to the film, I think everyone should see it at least once. Overall, this is a great movie, I can't recommend it enough.
