About the Movie
Winner of three Academy Awards, including Best Director, Brokeback Mountain is a sweeping epic that explores the lives of two young men, a ranch hand and a rodeo cowboy, who meet in the summer of 1963 and unexpectedly forge a lifelong connection. The complications, joys and heartbreak they experience provide a testament to the endurance and power of love. Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal deliver emotionally charged, remarkably moving performances in "a movie that is destined to become one of the great classics of our time" (Clay Smith, The Insider).

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A sweeping, solemn, self-serious chronicle of their relationship over several decades.
Fresh: Ang Lee continues to astonish.
Fresh: A film about love and the cost of lying that's exquisite in its beauty, painful in its truths.
Fresh: The movie has a universal quality because it tells a story of unfulfilled lives and roots it in the well-observed specifics of a vanishing Western culture.
A very poigniant love story and through Heath's character pt.of view it makes me want to cry he gives an absolutely exquisite performance. Wether the subject matter agrees w/ yout beliefs or not it's a must watch tragic romance.
Ang Lee's Masterpiece
Ang Lee is well known for giving emphasis on his movie's characters. Taking this into consideration, and reading Annie Proulx's short story (this movie is based on that short story), you will see why this movie is such a success. I really really suggest you read the short story... it will take your breath away. And after, watch the movie... you'll understand a lot of things much better. The actor's performances are, for lack of a better word, simply amazing. Specially Heath Ledger. It's such an honest movie. With only one thing to say: love is love, it doesn't matter where, how, or who feels it... love is love.
This movie had me in tears, kept me waiting to see what happened next, and what would become of the characters. I couldn't ask for anything more in a movie. Ang Lee, an amazing director, Jake Gyllenhaal, a great actor, and Heath Ledger, words cant describe how much of an amazing actor he was and how much he deserved that best actor award. This movie opened doors for others, like Milk, where Sean Penn won for best actor. Buy this, you wont regret it at all.
