Brokeback Mountain's superb Blu-ray

"Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal play two cowboys who, despite their traditional backgrounds, find that their close quarters and isolation in the wilderness leads them to a much more non-traditional relationship. They struggle mightily with their desires for a normal, traditional existence, and their desire for each other. The movie also featured breakout performances by Michelle Williams (as Heath Ledger’s wife Alma) and Anne Hathaway; each tries to cope with their increasing awareness of their respective spouses’ situations that run counter to their own moral beliefs.It was really great to see the late Heath Ledger onscreen again. I also watched The Dark Knight this weekend, and it along with Brokeback Mountain really brought home what a staggeringly good actor Heath Ledger was. His work will be missed – very few actors could inhabit a character with such ultimate believability. You’ll have a difficult time bettering the presentation of this excellent movie than with this superb Blu-ray from Universal. Very highly recommended". Source:
