We were saddened to learn of Oscar-winning screenwriter and novelist Larry McMurty's passing this week. In his honor our next Rialto Recommends is his Oscar winning screenplay for Ang Lee's beautiful and heartbreaking 2005 film BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN. A beautiful, epic Western, Brokeback Mountain's love story is imbued with heartbreaking universality thanks to moving performances by Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal. Entertainment Weekly raved "BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN is that rare thing, a big Hollywood weeper with a beautiful ache at its center. It's a modern-age Western that turns into a quietly revolutionary love story." While the Seattle Times said of BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN "It stays with you after you've seen it, like a haunting strain of music; both love song and elegy for what might have been." BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN is streaming on AmazonPrime or available to rent for a modest fee from Apple, Amazon, GooglePlay, YouTube, Vudu and others. Whether you've seen it before or never seen it, now is a good time to revisit this cinematic achievement that in our opinion was the very best film of 2005.
