^ It's not set in Romania, it's set in Yorkshire. :wink:

I won't spoil anything, but this movie is brilliant in so many ways! I definitely recommend this to everyone, truly an incredible movie.
Between this, 'Call Me By Your Name' and '120 Beats per Minute', queer cinema is having one hell of a year.

Anyone seen this? I absolutely loved it.

It’s basically the British Brokeback Mountain - but 2 farmers from Britain. Being a country boy I have been privy to a bit of a farm boy myself, but this is such a cute, easy yet moving love story.

Totally recommend it. It’s on 99% on Rotten Tomatoes and it’s done incredibly well on the film festival circuit, winning in Berlin and at Sundance.

I don‘t usually watch ‘gay‘ movies (or romantic movies in general), but my friend made me and it was really good. The lambing scenes were a little ew.

It really was Brokeback Mountain, but with a happy ending.

Loved it.

A change of country and decade can do a person wonders. One thing I couldn’t work out was if the British guy was ‘openly’ gay or not?

He was pretty nonchalant about it and the conversation he had with his girl friend alluded to that, how she mentioned her guy friend from uni and all.

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 :lol:
