It's 1963, a time in the United States when life was simple, straightforward and the lines between the sexes and sex roles were crisply drawn and severely delineated. Ennis Del Mar and Jack Twist find themselves thrown together when they are hired to tend sheep in the remote area of Brokeback Mountain, Wyoming. Because of the job, the two are forced to spend many hours together alone in the wild. Ennis and Jack are inexorably drawn to each other through their proximity, loneliness and through a shared lack of tenderness and emotion in their lives and are emotionally, physically and psychically bonded to each other almost from the start
A prairie home companion by Robert Altman( visu )
4 editions published in 2006 in English and Chinese and held by 1,763 libraries worldwide
As if the result of some strange mass-media fluke, the popular radio program "A Prairie Home Companion" somehow managed to survive the television age to entertain its audience every Saturday night from the stage of the historic Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, Minn. Week after week, hangdog host G.K. serves as unflappable emcee to an amiable hodgepodge of radio-friendly acts that include the likes of popular country duo Yolanda and Rhonda Johnson and singing cowboys the Old Trailhands. This is one show where the under-the-line antics are nearly as entertaining as the program itself. The efforts of down-on-his-luck private dick and backstage doorkeeper Guy Noir discovers the true identity of a mysterious blonde and helps aspiring teen singer Lola to find her true voice before a live audience. There is still plenty of fun and mystery to be had at the old Fitzgerald before the final curtain falls

His mother was a gentle, kind woman who often allowed her own needs and desires to give way to those of her husband and children. As Jack's memories come flooding back--of the course of a Texas summer in the 1950s--viewers observe Jack's evolving relationship with his parents, his younger brother, and God, while adult Jack questions the meanings of life, love, and family
