Synopsis[ edit ] Intwo young men, Ennis del Mar and Jack Twistare hired for the summer to look after sheep at a seasonal grazing range on the fictional Brokeback Mountain in Wyoming. Unexpectedly, they form an intense emotional and sexual attachment, but have to part ways at the end of the summer. Over the next twenty years, as their separate lives play out with marriages, children, and jobs, they continue reuniting for brief liaisons on camping trips in remote settings.
The film was frequently referred to in the media as the "gay cowboy movie", but a number of reviewers noted that both Jack and Ennis were bisexual.
Without Jack Twist, I don't know that he ever would have come out I think the whole point was that it was two souls that fell in love with each other. Clarence Patton and Christopher Murray said in New York's Gay City News that Ennis and Jack's experiences were metaphors for "many men who do not identify as gay or even queer, but who nevertheless have sex with other men".
In the end, Ang Lee's love story wasn't gay or straight, just human. Roger Ebert concluded that both characters were gay, but doubted it themselves: Gyllenhaal has stated that he is extremely proud of the film and his role, regardless of what the reactions would be.

Lee found the first scene difficult to film and has stated he has great respect for the two main actors for their "courage".

I think that pride is genuine, so I would not think that's hypocritical at all. In Spanish the film had two titles: According to news reports, the film has not been shown in theaters in China, although it was freely available in bootleg DVD and video.
The state said it did not distribute the film because the anticipated audience was too small to justify it. The foreign media suggested this was a cover for government opposition to a portrayal of homosexuality.
I think they are genuinely happy to see a Chinese director win an Academy Award with good artistic value. Not only in my judgment, I literally meet people who are genuinely happy.
No, no, I don't think so, it's just like they don't want homosexual movie shown in the movies, it's hard to put American logic It's just something else. I don't know how to describe it, it's just something else.
So what can I say? Homosexuality is legally a serious crime in most Islamic nations and is a taboo subject even in the few nations where it is legal. Lebanon was the only Arab country to show the film, and it released a censored format. The film was also released in Turkey.

RAI showed an uncensored version of the film on March 17, Miller made the decision at the last minute, after having contracted for the release and advertising for the film.
