How Could I Forget This?

I have been waiting for the trailer for Brokeback Mountain to come out for months now.

I watched it earlier this week, a couple of times, and it was worth the wait.

Now, I just have to make it until the movie arrives on the steps of our fair Multiplex...or more likely the Quad.

Having never read the "novella" that the movie is based on I have no real idea about the characters other than what I see in the trailer. This movie certainly seems like it could very well be today with the subject matter. Falling in love but doing what is right in light of society, but in the end knowing that this love won't go away. If this movie is as powerful as they say then I am sure, if Hollywood can see past the gay/bi subject, it will be around come Oscar time.

Come on it is Ang Lee after all.

AND it is about folks from Wyoming.

Somewhere, an actuary just added $1000 to the box office estimate.
