Welcome to the third season of PRIDE Movie Nights, hosted by the LGBTQ Group of UU Wellesley Hills. We will be hosting one evening per month for light conversation, snacks and the showing of a film with roots in the LGBTQ+ community.

Our second movie will be Brokeback Mountain. In 1963, rodeo cowboy Jack Twist (Jake Gyllenhaal) and ranch hand Ennis Del Mar (Heath Ledger) are hired by rancher Joe Aguirre (Randy Quaid) as sheep herders in Wyoming. One night on Brokeback Mountain, Jack makes a drunken pass at Ennis that is eventually reciprocated. Though Ennis marries his longtime sweetheart, Alma (Michelle Williams), and Jack marries a fellow rodeo rider (Anne Hathaway), the two men keep up their tortured and sporadic affair over the course of 20 years.

The movie will be shown in Rice House, on the campus of UU Wellesley Hills, in our comfortable living room for seating. Please kindly RSVP so we can be prepared with enough snacks.

Movie begins promptly at 7:15. We look forward to seeing you!
