What would Jack give Ennis for his birthday?
Heath Ledger, one of the creatively open and fertile minds through which the stifled tragic Ennis emerged celebrates his 27th Birthday today. In a neat (jack) twist Brokeback Mountain arrives on DVD today. So you can give it as a gift to you and yours. For those readers out there (I'm sure you exist) who didn't see this during its amazing $82 million run at the box office, try to forget the endless parodies and awards season hoopla. Just get lost in the movie. It's great.
