Adapted from a short story by "The Shipping News" writer E. Annie Proulx, the story centers on two men (Ledger and Gyllenhaal) who meet one summer as sheepherders in Wyoming and form a bond and love that spans 20 years. The film tracks that time period and their evolving relationship.
You can bring home one of the most talked-about films of the 21st Century home on Blu-ray this March. Brokeback Mountain will be released on Blu-ray on March 2. We don't have any cover art, pricing details or special features listings at this time, but we'll surely update this story as soon as we get more information. The film stars Heath Ledger, Jake Gylenhaal and Michelle Williams.
Early one morning in Signal, Wyoming, Ennis del Mar (Heath Ledger) and Jack Twist (Jake Gyllenhaal) meet while lining up for employment with local rancher Joe Aguirre (Randy Quaid). The world which Ennis and Jack have been born into is at once changing rapidly and yet scarcely evolving. Both young men seem certain of their set places in the heartland - obtaining steady work, marrying and raising a family - and yet hunger for something beyond what they can articulate. When Aguirre dispatches them to work as sheepherders up on the majestic Brokeback Mountain, they gravitate towards camaraderie and then a deeper intimacy.Read More

It was a huge night at the Golden Globes for two of last years most talked about films, Walk the Line and Brokeback Mountain. Brokeback was the big winner on the film side with four awards while Walk the Line won three trophies.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ang Lee's Brokeback Mountain, an art house weepie about two star-crossed ranch hands already appears to be crossing over into mainstream hit status. Budgeted at an estimated $14 million, the film, which is playing in only 683 theaters nationwide, has grossed a projected $32 million as of Monday. And now its embrace by the 84 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. before a nationwide TV audience should allow Focus to further broaden the movie's release into the heartland.
Heading into the Golden Globes, Brokeback led the pack with seven nominations and scored a solid victory by picking up four of them -- even if Heath Ledger's star turn as a man of few words failed to win best actor honors, which instead went to Philip Seymour Hoffman's far more verbally dexterous performance in Capote.Read More
