The random hook up in the bathroom was too much though, not that it felt unrealistic, but because it was such a small pub, everyone seemed to know what they were up to in there. That felt forced.
I don't think the movie is perfect by any means, but the actors had good chemistry.
I agree... but they needed to break them up somehow in order for the British guy to decide what he wanted head on. I agree he was very nonchalant about his sexuality - to an extent - but the horse trailer sex without kissing is so typical of a ‘straight’ guy who doesn’t want to be ‘gay’, and then there was his gran crying over a condom...
My interpretation is he was a bit muddled at the start, but wasn’t really fussed if he was gay or not. It was refreshing to see someone embrace it without making a song and dance about it, and for his gran - despite the crying scene - to embrace it and encourage him to go after his man without making it a coming out scene.
Anyway, the entire film reminded me of me and my farm hand dalliances growing up, so I enjoyed it for that reason too - but I never had sex in the mud. Stables yes, mud wrestling sex? Hell no, I don’t do mud
