Brokeback Mountain: Free Screening

Part of the free and open 1823 Series, Cinestudio presents a curated series of iconic films that each represent a decade since its founding, as selected by alumni, students, faculty, and staff. Representing the 2000’s, Brokeback Mountain (2005, Rated R) is a love story between rodeo cowboy Jack Twist (Jake Gyllenhaal) and ranch hand Ennis Del Mar (Heath Ledger) who are hired sheepherders in 1963 Wyoming. One night on Brokeback Mountain, Jack makes a drunken pass at Ennis that is eventually reciprocated. Following societal norms of the time, they both eventually marry wives (Michelle Williams and Anne Hathaway) but keep a tortured and sporadic affair alive over the course of 20 years.
