GOD’S OWN COUNTRY (15) – 2017 UK

Sold out.

Director: Francis Lee
Stars: Josh O’Connor, Alec Secareanu, Gemma Jones, 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).

Plus a BRIT School Showcase film, screened in partnership with the School’s Film & Media Production department.
For October we are showing Cycliste De Reve (4 mins), directed by Caleb Pithers-Gregory. This story of a boy’s efforts to gain a new bicycle recently won the School’s Best Year 12 Short Film award.
A different film will be shown at selected screenings each month.

David Lean Cinema, Croydon on Tuesday 24 October 2017

Show starts at 7.30PM, Ticket prices: £8.00 & £6.50 (concessions)

Patrons who saw our screening of Land of Mine not surprisingly described it as “immensely tense” and “harrowing”, but it was also a rewarding film about a little-known WWII subject. The Odyssey was also enjoyed by those who saw it, some of whom could remember seeing Cousteau’s films on television.

Only a handful of tickets still available for God’s Own Country, so you will need to be quick if you want to book for this exceptional British debut feature. Victoria and Abdul is sold out this week, but again there are a handful of tickets for both screenings on Wednesday 1 November. There are still seats available for our Halloween Double Bill of A Ghost Story and It Comes At Night, and you can save yourself £2 if you book both films together. Read more……..
