    Synopsis


    Brokeback Mountain
    Ang Lee's adaptation of E. Annie Proulx's story Brokeback Mountain stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger as young cowboys named Jack Twist and Ennis Del Mar. Each of them is hired to corral sheep on the title location and they soon bond very closely. Their platonic relationship explodes into a physical one, but eventually the two are separated when their job comes to an end. Although the two follow different life paths -- one becoming a father of two and the other marrying into a successful business -- they have a reunion years later. Each is affected profoundly by the rekindling of their old feelings for each other. Those feelings lead each to consider what continuing their hidden relationship would cost them. The screenplay was written by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

      A Classic Love Story

      By now, "Brokeback Mountain" is a certified American film classic, but of course it was groundbreaking when it was first released. I can't write anything about it greater than what has been written or said in the years since its release, other than to say it's simply one of my favorite films of all time. It's one of the greatest, most honest, raw love stories in the history of cinema, which honestly portrays heart-wrenching romantic longing of a kind that was forbidden by society at the time the film is set. Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal give fine performance, especially Ledger. As does Michelle Williams. From "The Ice Storm" to "Ride With the Devil" to "Brokeback Mountain" to "Taking Woodstock," I never fail to be impressed and engrossed by director Ang Lee's deep-down real portrayals of American life, and "Brokeback Mountain" is his crowning achievement. A beautiful film.

      Not many dudes will admit they love "Brokeback Mountain." But we're out there and if anyone wants a film that's unforgettable, you have that here. Everyone should see this as a film and as a statement about love and who we are in gender and in spirit. Don't be afraid - buy this or rent it. Love, life and quality stories are rare - they come together here. Go for it.

      It's a tragic love story on what it was like to be gay and in love in the early 60s to the 80s on the American Midwest... It makes you think what Society was like back then as it is compared to now...

      A great movie

      This is a touching love story. Many critics have said that this, as well as The Dark Knight, are the best movies Heath ever did. Now that he is gone, and I watch it again, it is that much sadder to have lost such a genius.

      This is one of those epic love stories that only come around every other decade. This film has rich characters, deep story and great epic scenery. This is a must in any movie collection especially Blu-ray.

      This is a great story rarely explored in the past. Beautiful scenery and a good looking group of actors. Sad about Heath now, but a wonderful movie.

      No one can help who they fall in love with... Great performances, great direction, and a moving/realistic story. Actually had me crying by the end.
