"Brokeback Mountain" by Annie Proulx

Brokeback Mountain by Annie ProulxThe movie Brokeback Mountain is expected to garner the most mentions when nominations for the 78th Academy Awards (a.k.a. "Oscars") are announced on January 31.

The screenplay for the movie was based on a short story by Annie Proulx that was published in the New Yorker on 13 October 1997. The story was eventually published as part of Close Range: Wyoming Stories, a collection of Proulx's short stories.

If you would like to read the short story on which the movie is based, the full text is available here. Just in case the New Yorker asks those who posted the story to take it down, you can always check the cached version (Google, Yahoo; what's a cache?). And then if you like the story so much, I suggest you Furl It, so that you'll always have your own copy even if the webpage disappears.

You can watch the movie's trailer on the official website or on YouTube.

"'Brokeback Mountain' - One More Time" and "Broken Links," maybe I can still help you.]
