Túl a barátságon
A Wyoming és Texas tágas síkságain forgatott film két fiatalember, egy mezőgazdasági munkás és egy rodeo cowboy történetét meséli el, akik 1963 nyarán találkoznak, váratlanul egy életre szóló kapcsolat alakul ki közöttük, melynek bonyodalmai, örömei és tragédiái a szerelem összetartó erejéről és hatalmáról tanúskodnak.
Ennis Del Mar és Jack Twist először egy hajnalon találkoznak, Joe Aguirre birtokán, a munkáért sorban állók között. Az a világ, amelybe beleszülettek, hirtelen változni kezd és mégis, szinte alig fejlődik... Mindkettőjüket ehhez a tájhoz kötik céljaik – tartós munkát találni, megházasodni, családot alapítani – és mégis vágynak valami másra, megfoghatatlanra is. Amikor Aguirre pásztorként alkalmazza mindkettőjüket a fenséges Brokeback hegyen, egymásra találnak a barátságban, majd egy ennél is mélyebb kapcsolatban.
Nyár végére el kell hagyniuk a Brokeback hegyet és útjaik elválnak. Ennis Wyomingban marad és feleségül veszi szerelmét, Almát, aki két fiút szül neki. Jack-re Texasban felfigyel a rodeo királynője, Lureen Newsome. Kapcsolatuk házassággal folytatódik, egy fiúk születik, Jack pedig apósánál kap állást.
Négy év telik el, amikor Ennisnek átad a felesége egy képeslapot, amely Jacktől érkezett, hogy átutazóban lesz Wyomingban. Ennis lelkesen várja barátját, majd egy pillanat alatt világosság válik, hogy az eltelt idő csak erősítette a kettőjüket összekötő szálakat. A következő években Ennis és Jack küzdelmesen igyekszik fenntartani a kettőjüket összekötő titkos kapcsolatot. Évente többször találkoznak. De amikor nincsenek együtt, szembekerülnek a hűség, az elkötelezettség és a bizalom örök problémáival. Végül már csak a természet ereje, a szerelem marad állandó az életükben.

Anne Jacqueline Hathaway was born in Brooklyn, New York, to 'Kate McCauley Hathaway' (qv), an actress, and 'Gerald T. Hathaway' (qv), a lawyer, both originally from Philadelphia. She is of mostly Irish descent, along with English, German, and French. Her first major role came in the short-lived television series _"Get Real" (1999)_ (qv). She gained widespread recognition for her roles in _The Princess Diaries (2001)_ (qv) and its 2004 sequel as a young girl who discovers she is a member of royalty, opposite 'Julie Andrews (I)' (qv) and 'Heather Matarazzo' (qv). She also had a notable role in _Nicholas Nickleby (2002)_ (qv) opposite 'Charlie Hunnam' (qv) and 'Jamie Bell (I)' (qv), and a starring role in _Ella Enchanted (2004)_ (qv). A former top-ranking soprano in New York, Hathaway was reportedly a front-runner for the role of "Christine" in the 2004 _The Phantom of the Opera (2004)_ (qv). However, due to scheduling conflicts with _The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement (2004)_ (qv), she couldn't take the role, which was later given to newcomer 'Emmy Rossum' (qv). Hathaway soon started to move away from family-friendly films. Following _The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement (2004)_ (qv), she appeared topless in the films _Havoc (2005)_ (qv) opposite 'Josh Peck (I)' (qv) and _Brokeback Mountain (2005)_ (qv) opposite 'Heath Ledger' (qv) and 'Jake Gyllenhaal' (qv). Her desire to break out of her "Princess Diaries" image parallels that of her one-time co-star, 'Julie Andrews (I)' (qv), who went topless in the film _S.O.B. (1981)_ (qv) in order to break away from the image she created from her 1960s musicals. In interviews, Hathaway said that doing family-friendly films didn't mean she was similar to their characters or mean she objected to appearing nude in other films.
Heathcliff Andrew Ledger (Perth, 1979. április 4. – New York, 2008. január 22.) Oscar-díjas ausztrál színész. Ledger a nyugat-ausztráliai Perthben született egy skót, angol és ír felmenőkkel rendelkező családban, Sally Ledger Bell (született Ramshaw) franciatanárnő, és Kim Ledger autóversenyző és bányamérnök fiaként. Őt és testvérét, Kate-et Emily Brontë klasszikusának, az Üvöltő szeleknek két főszereplőjéről nevezték el (Heathcliff és Catherine). Ledger a Guildford Grammar School gimnáziumba járt, ahol először szerepelt színpadon, Pán Péter szerepében, 10 évesen. 16 évesen döntött úgy, hogy filmes karrierbe kezd, legjobb barátjával, Trevor DiCarlóval Sydneybe utaztak. Majd visszatért Perthbe, és elvállalta Snowy Bowles szerepét a Sweat című sorozatban 1996-ban, melyben egy homoszexuális kerékpározót játszott. 1996-ban elvállalt egy szerepet a rövid életű Roar című sorozatban is, majd az 1997-ben bemutatott ausztrál filmben, a Blackrockban kapott szerepet. Első jelentős főszerepét a 10 dolog, amit utálok benned című tinivígjátékban játszotta el. Ugyanabban az évben játszhatta el a Kéz és ököl című film főszerepét is. Kevesen tudták róla, hogy egy videoklipet is szeretett volna megrendezni. Ez majdnem sikerült is neki, de a Modest Mouse zenekar King Rat című videójának munkálatait sajnos már nem tudta befejezni. A komoly üzenettel bíró, felkavaró animációs klipet a The Masses nevű cég, melyben Ledger is dolgozott fejezte be 2009-ben.
When a hunky, twenty-year-old heart-throb Heath Ledger first came to the attention of the public in 1999, it was all too easy to tag him as a "pretty boy" and an actor of little depth. He spent several years trying desperately to sway this image, but this was a double-edged sword. Heath Ledger was born on the fourth of April 1979, in Perth, Western Australia, to Sally (Ramshaw), a teacher of French, and Kim Ledger, a mining engineer who also raced cars. As the story goes, in junior high school it was compulsory to take one of two electives, either cooking or drama. As Heath could not see himself in a cooking class he tried his hand at drama. Heath was talented, however the rest of the class did not acknowledge his talent. When he was seventeen he and a friend decided to pack up, leave school, take a car and rough it to Sydney. Heath believed Sydney to be the place where dreams were made or, at least, where actors could possibly get their big break. Upon arriving in Sydney with a purported sixty-nine cents to his name, Heath tried everything to get a break. His first real acting job came in a low-budget movie called _Blackrock (1997)_ (qv), a largely unimpressive cliché; an adolescent angst film about one boy's struggle when he learns his best mate raped a girl. He only had a very small role in the film. After that small role Heath auditioned for a role in a T.V. show called _"Sweat" (1996)_ (qv) about a group of young Olympic hopefuls. He was offered one of two roles, one as a swimmer, another as a gay cyclist. Heath accepted the latter because he felt to really stand out as an actor one had to accept unique roles that stood out from the bunch. It got him small notice, but unfortunately the show was quickly axed, forcing him to look for other roles. He was in _"Home and Away" (1988)_ (qv) for a very short period, in which he played a surfer who falls in love with one of the girls of Summer Bay. Then came his very brief role in _Paws (1997)_ (qv), a film which existed solely to cash in on guitar prodigy 'Nathan Cavaleri' (qv)'s brief moment of fame, where he was the hottest thing in Australia. Heath played a student in the film, involved in a stage production of a Shakespeare play, in which he played "Oberon". A very brief role, this offered him a small paycheck but did nothing to advance his career. Then came _Two Hands (1999)_ (qv). He went to the U.S. trying to audition for film roles, showcasing his brief role in _"Roar" (1997)_ (qv) opposite then unknown 'Vera Farmiga' (qv). Then Australian director 'Gregor Jordan' (qv) auditioned him for the lead in _Two Hands (1999)_ (qv), which he got. An in your face Aussie crime thriller, _Two Hands (1999)_ (qv) was outstanding and helped him secure a role in _10 Things I Hate About You (1999)_ (qv). After that, it seemed Heath was being typecast as a young hunk, which he did not like, so he accepted a role in a very serious war drama _The Patriot (2000)_ (qv). What followed was a stark inconsistency of roles, Ledger accepting virtually every single character role, anything to avoid being typecast. Some met with praise, like his short role in _Monster's Ball (2001)_ (qv), but his version of _Ned Kelly (2003)_ (qv) was an absolute flop, which led distributors hesitant to even release it outside Australia. Heath finally had deserved success with his role in _Brokeback Mountain (2005)_ (qv), for which he was nominated for an Oscar and a B.A.F.T.A. Ledger was found dead on January 22, 2008 in his apartment in the Manhattan neighborhood of SoHo, with a bottle of prescription sleeping pills near-by. It was concluded weeks later that he died of an accidental overdose of prescription drugs that included pain-killers, sleeping pills and anti-anxiety medication. After his death he received more than thirty posthumous awards for his portrayal as the psychopathic clown prince of crime in _The Dark Knight (2008)_ (qv) (including the Oscar, S.A.G., B.A.F.T.A., and Golden Globe)

Randall Rudy "Randy" Quaid (Houston, 1950. október 1.–) amerikai színész és komikus. Legfőképp a Családi vakáció (1983), Az utolsó szolgálat (1974), A függetlenség napja (1996), a Tökös tekés (1996), a Brokeback Mountain – Túl a barátságon, az Elvis – A kezdet kezdete (2005) című filmekben, illetve televíziós sorozatban betöltött szerepei miatt ismert. Egy Golden Globe-díjjal (1988) rendelkezik, továbbá többször jelölték már Emmy-, BAFTA-, Oscar-, illetve Golden Globe-díjra.
Quaid is an Academy award nominated actor, for his performance in The Last Detail (1973). Hal Ashby directed Quaid in the role of Meadows opposite Jack Nicholson and Otis Young. Quaid is a great and much admired actor that has been recognized by Hollywood and the worlds finest directors, Midnight Exspress, The last Picture Show, Ice Harvest (2005), Real Time (2008), King Carlos in Goya's Ghosts (2006) for director Milos Forman. Forman cast Quaid as "King Carlos IV of Spain" after seeing his Golden globe nominated performance as The Colonel in Elvis.

Quaid also earned a Golden Globe for portraying Lyndon Johnson, and received a Golden Globe Nomination for incarnating "Colonel" Tom Parker in Elvis (2005). The portrait of Colonel Parker, a former carnival barker with a murky past, is dark. The New York Times said "Mr. Quaid is riveting as the bully of Graceland", when he has Elvis firmly under his thumb, he is the L.B.J. of rock 'n' roll - a towering, wheedling, tirelessly self-promoting Southern fox in the rare instances when Elvis defies him, Colonel Parker shrinks into a hand-wringing phony, cajoling his only client in the overly ornate language of Professor Marvel in "The Wizard of Oz". Quaid stars in and was nominated for The Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a cast for his work in Brokeback Mountain(2005), directed by Ang Lee from a script written by Larry McMurtry, who also wrote The Last Picture Show (1971) in which Quaid had his first feature film role. Working with McMurtry and supporting his material has become a Randy Quaid career tradition. Quaid's performance in Brokeback Mountain (2005) was listed as one of the New York Observer's 2005 Noteworthy male performances.
