감독에 의해 같은 제목의 영화로도 제작되었다. 영화 "Brokeback Mountain"은 헤스 레저와 제이크 질렌홀 두 배우가 주연을 맡았으며, 베니스 국제영화제의 최고영예인 황금사자상을 수상하였다.Two handsomely produced editions of this award-winning story coincide with the release of the major independent film directed by Ang Lee and starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger.Annie Proulx has written some of the most original and brilliant short stories in contemporary literature, and for many readers and reviewers, "Brokeback Mountain" is her masterpiece.Ennis del Mar and Jack Twist, two ranch hands, come together when they're working as sheepherder and camp tender one summer on a range above the tree line. At first, sharing an isolated tent, the attraction is casual, inevitable, but something deeper catches them that summer.Both men work hard, marry, and have kids because that's what cowboys do. But over the course of many years and frequent separations this relationship becomes the most important thing in their lives, and they do anything they can to preserve it."The New Yorker" won the National Magazine Award for Fiction for its publication of "Brokeback Mountain," and the story was included in "Prize Stories 1998: The O. Henry Awards." In gorgeous and haunting prose, Proulx limns the difficult, dangerous affair between two cowboys that survives everything but the world's violent intolerance. [예스24 제공]
