You never know where you will find love. Which is why we should always look our best, but that’s beside the point. My point is that you could run into the love of your life in the most unexpected place and if you have my luck, it’ll be a forbidden like like the story of Ennis and Jack. Living in a time and place where homosexuality was frowned upon, Ennis and Jack fell in love and were forced to keep it a secret. This week’s instant movie is one of my favorite movies, Brokeback Mountain. So, there a storm coming and why not spend tonight with these boys because:
- One of the best performances of Heath Ledger’s short-lived career.
- This love affair is crazy intense. Makes me want to keep someone a secret.
- It was very well received by critics – it won BAFTAs, an Independent Spirit Award and Academy Awards!
- It was directed by the very talented Ang Lee
- And lastly, Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger are way cute together!
So stay in, put the little ones to bed and keep warm with this heartfelt story about a love that could never be! Don’t forget the cookies and warm milk too.
