COMING OF AGE

Like Frankie in Eliza Hittman’s revelatory Beach Rats, Johnny (Josh O’Connor)—a West Yorkshire shepherd in Francis Lee’s bracing new film GOD’S OWN COUNTRY—is a sullen, self-destructive, working-class youth, fully aware of his same-sex desires, and determined to satisfy them free of any emotional (or political) commitment. Johnny’s pattern is fairly typical: rough assignations in bathrooms […]
