Don't know if this was mentioned yet but I love the little smile on Ennis' face when he sends that little prayer up. It is only one of two times he seems really happy. The other tiime is of course when he is standing on the landing looking down at Jack when he first arrives.



And when they are riding along and Jack is playing the harmonica, "Run them sheep off..."  Samwise, it is GREAT to see you here!

Thanks to all!


May we have much other such little details?  I saw some last night when I re-saw the BM movie!

Hugs!

Greetings samwise!  It's amazing that you brought up this detail... because earlier this weekend I was watching BBM and was struck (once again) by not only Ennis's smile there but also the little wink that he gives Jack!!  It's just such a sweet, open moment for Ennis.  *sigh*

Smiles!!

Both main actors do try to smile to the other... at times!! But so rarely!!
More would have been OK ??

Hugs!!

I know Jack smiles a lot, at least early on anyway. But I think that since Ennis smiles so few times it is a real treat when he does let those walls down for however brief a moment.

Yes, watching Ennis "come out of his shell" with Jack early on during their summer on Brokeback is just amazing.  The scene where Jack makes Ennis laugh by jumping around and acting goofy... is just so simple and so magical at the same time.  It really is a nice relief to see Ennis relaxing a bit.

At other times besides Ennis nor Jack, we see which person smile at either?

I love the scenes where Jack and Ennis are setting up camp. One example is the short scene where Jack puts a rasher of bacon in a sack and hoists it on a tripod so bears can't get it. I love that scene!

Too much to do. . .I don't have time to get old!

Another incredibly subtle detail that I've grown to love is the blowing trash. When Jack and Ennis are parting, after they come down from the mountain, right after Ennis says, "Well see you around, huh?" there are two little bits of trash that blow across the scene behind Jack. One is black, the other white. That's the sad part...

But then, we see them again! Behind Jack as he rushes to meet Ennis again after four years apart!! That's the happy part!!
