Brokeback Mountain: Page to Screen

Our Page to Screen series, co-presented by Arvida Book Co., returns with Ang Lee's 2005 romantic masterpiece, Brokeback Mountain.

Rodeo cowboy Jack (Jake Gyllenhaal) and ranch hand Ennis (Heath Ledger) are hired as sheepherders in 1963 Wyoming. One night on Brokeback Mountain, they spark a physical relationship. Though Ennis marries his longtime sweetheart and Jack marries a fellow rodeo rider, they keep up their tortured, sporadic love affair for 20 years.

Based on the beloved short story of the same name by Annie Proulx, Brokeback Mountain is unapologetic in its ability to convey heartache, longing, and the passage of time in a brilliantly realized whole.
