A fictitious love story loosely inspired by the lives of Danish artists Lili Elbe and Gerda Wegener. Lili and Gerda's marriage and work evolve as they navigate Lili's groundbreaking journey as a transgender pioneer.
A young man who survives a disaster at sea is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While cast away, he forms an unexpected connection with another survivor: a fearsome Bengal tiger.
Two young men, Ennis Del Mar and Jack Twist, meet when they get a job as sheep herders on Brokeback Mountain. They are at first strangers, then they become friends. Throughout the weeks, they grow closer as they learn more about each other. One night, after some heavy drinking, they find a deeper connection. They then indulge in a blissful romance for the rest of the summer. Unable to deal with their feelings for each other, they part ways at the end of the summer. Four years go by, and they each settle down, Ennis in Wyoming with his wife and two girls, and Jack in Texas with his wife and son. Still longing for each other, they meet back up, and are faced with the fact that they need each other. They undeniably need each other, and unsure of what to do, they start a series of "fishing trips", in order to spend time together. The relationship struggles on for years until tragedy strikes.Written by

In the beginning of the movie we see Ennis is wearing his Carrhart chore jacket. The jacket in the first part is like brand new. As soon as he goes into the trailer it's worn and looks like it's a few years old. And as the movie goes on it's even more worn even though it's only been a few days or weeks. See more »
Let me start this off by saying that I am a proud citizen of mobile, Alabama and a follower of Jesus Christ our lord. I agree with everything the Bible says about sex before marriage, drugs, and the homosexuals. So imagine my surprise when my wife comes home with two tickets to go see Brokeback Mountain (She heard about its 8 Oscar nominations or something). Now, you don't know my wife..but she asks me to do about two things a year: go to a dinner with her and go to movie. And if I don't, I'm pretty sure I would lose an appendage and since I didn't really want to figure which one she'd pick, I just went and saw it. And I liked it. It got me thinking...what if I'm wrong? about the whole thing. I'm not saying I'm gonna agree with the whole gay agenda or anything...but it got me thinking. And that's something.
