We’ve collected all of five of our features from our Special Issue on Francis Lee’s God’s Own Country in one easy-to-read, collectible place, and included a foreword by our Editor-in-Chief Alex Heeney about 7R’s journey with the film through 2017.
Seventh Row’s Special Issues are of such high standard that one would be excused to think they only belong in hardcover print. I have re-read some of them more times than I care to admit, and thanks to the e-books, I do so on the bus to and from work, while I’m waiting for a movie to start, or just on the bed at home. – Per M.

I found @SeventhRow produced some great articles & interviews which helped me explore the film more in repeated viewings. Including understanding the various technical & artistic contributors
