Our take

Not far from achieving classic status, Ang Lee’s romantic tale between 2 cowboys shook Hollywood for its honest portrayal of homosexuality. Winner of 3 Oscars, Brokeback Mountain was an instant popular hit, a success worthy of its elegant and heartbreaking story of impossible love and repression.
