Over the weekend I went to go see Brokeback Mountain...first movie I have seen at the theater in years. We went to the early bird show (3:50) and went in after the previews had started. I really liked the movie...the scenery was amazing and it was a good story. I was amazed that a movie like that has been so popular...as it was very graphic regarding the men with men sex and passionate kissing scenes. I live in the NY Metro area... and the audience I saw it with was very mixed...lotta senior citizen couples (late 60s and 70's) due to the time I saw it. Most seemed to be very moved and appreciate the romance..as apparent after the lights came on. (I don't want to give too many details)
Supposedly the movie isn't playing in some areas because there aren't enough reels to distribute...but some theaters won't play it due to the gay subject matter.
