Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger in Brokeback Mountain

In the mood for a great Western romance? | Brokeback Mountain

Ang Lee’s American masterpiece Brokeback Mountain is an unforgettable tale of love. After Ennis Del Mar (Heath Ledger) and Jack Twist (Jake Gyllenhaal) fall in love while herding sheep on Brokeback Mountain, they spend the rest of their lives hoping to regain the freedom and promise they felt that summer. “The glory of Brokeback Mountain is that in tracing their fates, treating their passion as something unprecedented—a force so powerful it can scarcely be named—the movie makes love seem as ineffable as it really is,” writes Entertainment Weekly. In 2006, Brokeback Mountain was nominated for eight Academy Awards, with Gustavo Santaolalla winning for Original Score, Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana for Adapted Screenplay, and Lee for Best Director.
