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.
