Brokeback Mountain Scene 2

Scene 2

Scene 2

  • Ennis prepares a mule while Jack loads a rifle.
  • The men drive the sheep up the beautiful mountain, across green pastures and along blue streams.
  • At the top, they take in the view. Lots of trees, and sheep as far as the eye can see. (This movie will make you feel a lot of things, but one of the things it will make you feel is, "I've got to see the West before I die.")
  • Jack and Ennis build a fire and set up camp. How long before they start singing campfire songs?
  • In the morning, it's beans and toast for breakfast. What, no waffles?
  • Ennis tells Jack that he'll be marrying his woman, Alma, after coming down off the mountain.
  • He sounds…not psyched.
