After much thought and consideration, this was the best movie I have seen this year.
Heath Ledger is probably neck-and-neck with Phillip Seymour Hoffman in Capote for best actor and it should be an interesting competition being that Hoffman’s performance (from what I’ve been told) is more showy while Ledger’s is extremely quiet and nuanced. It’s more about how he expressed himself even though he wasn’t a talker.
Anyway, it was a sad love movie. Not so much about gay cowboys but about two people who couldn’t do the one thing they both they wanted to do.
Actually it’s more about what happens when one person isn’t willing to follow his heart and live a long repressed life.
I wonder if Ang Lee had Michelle “Dawson’s Creek” Williams and Anne “The Princess Diaries” Hathaway show their breasts in some sort of “There’s something for everyone” gesture.
