Brokeback Mountain Summary

This is the film tie-in edition of the story by Annie Proulx, now a movie starring Heath Ledger, Jake Gyllenhaal, Randy Quaid, Anne Hathaway, and Michelle Williams.

Brokeback Mountain is set in the beautiful, wild landscape of Wyoming where cowboys live as they have done for generations. Hard, lonely lives in unforgiving country. Jack Twist and Ennis del Mar are two ranch hands, "drop-out country boys with no prospects, brought up to hard work and privation, both rough-mannered, tough spoken", glad to have found each other's company where none had been expected. But companionship becomes something else on Brokeback Mountain, something not looked for, something deadly.
