Brokeback Mountain (2005)

Based on the Annie Proulx short story, Brokeback is a rich love story between a ranch hand (Heath Ledger) and a rodeo cowboy (Jake Gyllenhaal) who meet in the summer of 1963. The movie won many awards including Best Director for Ang Lee. It fell short of a Best Picture win to the racially charged film "Crash."Focus Features
