Synopsis

The Taiwanese director of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Hulk, Sense & Sensibility and The Ice Storm here revisits themes from his earliest films, Pushing Hands and The Wedding Banquet; the gay man struggling with society’s restraints.

1963. Beneath the skies of Brokeback Mountain a farmhand and a rodeo rider begin a relationship. Knowing that society will never allow it they agree to part, but meet again 4 years later, both now married.

No doubt Oscar attention will have brought this onto most peoples' radar but for once it is fully deserving. With surprisingly mature performances, particularly from a revelatory Heath Ledger, this is a rich, classic drama to envelop you in every scene.
