Beyond Brokeback: The Impact of a Film by Members of the Ultimate Brokeback Forum
Beyond Brokeback is a sampling of deeply moving personal stories prompted by Annie Proulx's short story Brokeback Mountain and the Ang Lee film which it inspired; a movie in which the ravages of self-denial are portrayed with unique frankness and realism. These stories, selected from contributions to an online forum dedicated to Brokeback Mountain at davecullen.com, describe the fears, hopes and aspirations of those readers and viewers for whom Brokeback Mountain is a revelation. Here, the cathartic power of great writing and great film making is clearly evident. No other story or film has inspired so many of its audience to personal positive change.
