About the film:

Winner of three Academy Awards including Best Director.

Rodeo cowboy Jack and ranch hand Ennis 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.

“It is simply one of the greatest love stories in film history.”

—Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
