This 2005 Oscar-nominated film about the love affair between two closeted gay men is the tenth highest-grossing romance film of all time. Ennis (Heath Ledger) is a ranch hand and Jack (Jake Gyllenhaal) a rodeo cowboy. The two men meet and fall in love one summer at Wyoming's Brokeback Mountain in 1963. Unable to openly have a relationship, they marry and have families while harboring their secret. Brokeback Mountain is a poignant romance set in a time when gay couples faced extreme discrimination.
