The film that broke down barriers with its telling of the forbidden relationship between two male ranchers.
"Brokeback Mountain" broke down barriers in 2005 as the story of a forbidden and secretive relationship between two male ranchers camping together in the wilderness — and the effects that the affair had on their lives. The film served as a launching pad for the careers of Jake Gyllenhaal and the late Heath Ledger. While audiences have become much more open to same-sex love stories in the years since its release, this one remains a hot and heavy classic.
