Cinema: Brokeback Mountain

1963, Wyoming: Jack (Jake Gyllenhaal) and Ennis (Heath Ledger) are hired to herd sheep for the summer. 

Our second Ang Lee film this month exploring love in a hostile society is a triple-Oscar winner (Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Original Score) that made waves in conservative America and had a major impact on the mainstream film industry's take on gay-themed projects. 

It stays with you after you've seen it, like a haunting strain of music; both love song and elegy for what might have been. Seattle Time

Ang Lee's unmissable and unforgettable Brokeback Mountain hits you like a shot in the heart. It's a landmark film and a triumph for Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal. Rolling Stone
