The Taiwanese director of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Hulk, Sense & Sensibility and The Ice Storm here revisits themes from his earliest films, Pushing Hands and The Wedding Banquet; the gay man struggling with society’s restraints.
1963. Beneath the skies of Brokeback Mountain a farmhand and a rodeo rider begin a relationship. Knowing that society will never allow it they agree to part, but meet again 4 years later, both now married.
