21 Extremely Gay Movies You Can Stream Right Now (2)

Francis Lee's feature film takes Brokeback Mountain and gives it a needed upgrade set in West Yorkshire. There, Johnny Saxby (played by The Crown's Josh O'Connor) is frankly wasting away on his family's farm. That is until Gheorghe Ionescu (played by Alec Secareanu), a Romanian migrant and hired hand, comes into the picture. Ionescu brings with him not only a deft hand at running the farm, but also an intimacy and romanticism that is spellbinding not only for Saxby, but the audience as well. It's truly a must-watch.
