Brokeback Mountain

Sharon and I watched Brokeback Mountain. Sharon had seen the film in the theater when it came out in 2005, but I hadn't.

The film stars Heath Ledger, Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway, Michelle Williams, and Randy Quaid. It depicts the complex relationship between two men in the American West from 1963 to 1983.

The film was nominated for eight Academy Awards; the most nominations at the 78th Academy Awards. The nominations included: Best Picture; Best Actor in a Leading Role (Heath Ledger); Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Jake Gyllenhaal); Best Actress in a Supporting Role (Michelle Williams); and Best Cinematography (Rodrigo Prieto). The film ended up winning three Oscars: Best Director (Ang Lee); Best Adapted Screenplay (Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana); and, Best Original Score (Gustavo Santaolalla). It lost best picture to Crash.
