Director: Francis Lee ● Starring: Josh O'Connor, Alec Secareanu, Gemma Jones and Ian Hart. 

A run-down Yorkshire farm is the setting for this debut feature from director Francis Lee.

Johnny Saxby (O’Connor), who lives with his crippled father (Hart) and grandmother (Jones), eases his daily frustrations with binge drinking and casual sex.

Forced to hire a migrant worker (Secareanu), who he initially despises, Johnny finds their burgeoning relationship and his worsening family circumstances require him to question what he wants out of life.

“This is one of the most assured, fully-formed British debuts of recent years” (Sight and Sound).

With one showing at 7.30pm ONLY.
