Jack (Jake Gyllenhaal) and Ennis (Heath Ledger) can only be themselves when they see each other on trips to Brokeback Mountain that become rarer and rarer as life gets in the way. Their heartbreaking confrontation leads to one of the most famous lines from Ang Lee’s masterpiece of repressed desire: “I wish I knew how to quit you.”

Winner of three Academy Awards®, including Best Director, Brokeback Mountain is a sweeping epic that explores the lives of two young men, a ranch hand and a rodeo cowboy, who meet in the summer of 1963 and unexpectedly forge a lifelong connection. The complications, joys and heartbreak they experience provide a testament to the endurance and power of love. Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal deliver emotionally charged, remarkably moving performances in “a movie that is destined to become one of the great classics of our time” (Clay Smith, The Insider).
