Triple Oscar winner back for a week by popular demand!

Fêted with awards around the world and a hat-trick at this years Oscars, Ang Lee's adaptation of a story by E. Annie Proulx (The Shipping News) returns to the Barbican.

Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger play Jack and Ennis, two ranch hands who meet one summer on the remote Brokeback Mountain. They draw each other into a tender relationship, which will soar and crash over decades in the ecstasy and bitterness of lifelong love.

See Brokeback Mountain on the big screen and swoon at cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto’s interweaving of intricate 1960s and ‘70s detail with magnificent longrange studies of the American West, and marvel at the emotionally devastating charge generated by the actors.

US 2005 Dir. Ang Lee 135 min
