A classic from the past (2): Brokeback Mountain featuring Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal

It’s one of the most celebrated gay films of all time, the American film Brokeback Mountain. Besides winning four Golden Globe Awards and BAFTA Awards, it won three Oscars at the 78th Academy Awards among various other awards. The film tells the story of two young men, Ennis Del Mar and Jack Twist, who meet each other in 1963 and forge an unexpected, romantic and lifelong connection. It’s one of the first mainstream films that focusses on the characters instead of LGBT rights movements as it emphasizes the tragic love story of Ennis and Jack. Therefor Brokeback Mountain is a must watch for everyone who identifies him- or herself as part of the LGBT-community. Besides that, it’s just an amazing film!

Brokeback Mountain is based on a short story by Annie Proulx. It’s adapted by Larry McMurtry in collaboration with Diana Ossana and it’s directed by Ang Lee. It stars Heath Ledger, Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway and Michelle Williams.
