    Brokeback Mountain (Free film screening)

    To celebrate the Alberta premiere of Lilies (Les Feluettes), Canada's first gay opera, Edmonton Opera presents a free Gay Film Series at Metro Cinema Garneau. This film series celebrates the best of gay cinema from both Hollywood and Canada in the last 20 years. From intensely romantic to psychologically charged, each film explores themes of forbidden love, societal norms, and the power of passion.

    Brokeback Mountain

    When two young men Ennis (Heath Ledger) and Jack (Jake Gyllenhaal) meet while herding sheep in 1960s Wyoming, the attraction between them is instant. Yet their newfound love can never go beyond the solitude of Brokeback Mountain — over the next twenty years, both men marry according to societal expectations, have children, and find ways to be together without being discovered. Far from the traditional Hollywood love story, multiple Oscar-winning Brokeback Mountain is a sweeping, timeless, and heartbreaking romantic drama. 

    Free admission.

    Tom, a young ad copywriter from Montreal, heads to a remote farm in Quebec to visit the family of his recently deceased boyfriend Guillaume. But when he gets there, Tom realizes no one has heard of their relationship except Guillaume's brother Francis, who violently threatens him to keep things quiet. Soon, Tom becomes attached to life on the farm and grows dangerously close to Francis, realizing he might never leave. Based on a play by Michel Marc Bouchard, this Hitchcockian psychosexual drama is stylishly directed by Canadian prodigy Xavier Dolán.
