Valentine's Hearbreakers! week continues at Trailers from Hell with director Dan Ireland introducing Ang Lee's Oscar winner (Best Director, Score, Adapted Screenplay) "Brokeback Mountain," starring the late Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway and Michelle Williams.

Set in 1963, Ang Lee's acclaimed multi-award winning drama about a rodeo cowboy and a ranch hand who fall in love gave new meaning to the word cowpoke. By turns solemn and romantic, it proved a breakthrough movie in widening tolerance and appreciation for the varied ways of the human heart. Memorable music score by Gustavo Santaolalla.
