Movie rec: Brokeback Mountain

Saw Brokeback Mountain this weekend.  Thoroughly recommend it, even though it is quite sad. 
It makes an important and much needed social statement, in its quiet way, just by showing these guys as working class individuals who, much to their own surprise, fall in love, and then the pain they and their families endure because their love is not accepted by society.   Apparently, it is 8th in the country in box office receipts.  I say good that it is being well-received and may win awards but even better if it is making money. That will make Hollywood take notice - and make people realize that Alexander wasn't a disaster just because of the gay content.
