AWARD- WINNER Sunday BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN
GEM, 8.50pm, M ( 2005)
With a stunning backdrop, a master director in Ang Lee and commanding performances from the late Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal, this controversial cowboy yarn is near flawless. Lee’s classic begins in 1963, when a relationship blooms between a pair of Wyoming cowboys ( Ledger and Gyllenhaal). As the summer ends, both men quickly marry, but their time at Brokeback Mountain proves too strong to forget and the pair try to sustain their relationship over the ensuing two decades. Featuring careerbest performances from Ledger and Gyllenhaal, it is the most memorable cinematic love story for some time.
Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger deliver powerful performances.
