Brokeback Mountain
Pulitzer Prize-winner Annie Proulx's short story, originally published in The New Yorker, forms the basis of Oscar-winning director Ang Lee's sensitively rendered drama. 

The story is about two young Wyoming-raised 'cowboys' who meet herding sheep on Brokeback Mountain in the Summer of 1963 and forge a lifelong connection complicated by fear, denial and secrecy.

Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal were acclaimed for their on-screen portrayals and the film was awarded the Golden Lion for Best Picture at the Venice International Film Festival.

"An absolutely perfect film" Margaret Pomeranz, At the Movies
