Brokeback Mountain

One man, two shirts.

Near the end of this masterpiece, a haunting meditation on love and regret, Heath Ledger, the best actor of his generation, stands alone, lost in his memories.

In his hands are two cowboy shirts, one his own, and one which belonged to the true love of his life, who has recently passed away.

The shirts are carefully tucked together, and Ledger, holding them close, is lost in what was, and what will never be.

It is an extraordinary performance, in a film directed with passion and precision by Oscar winner Ang Lee.
