Set against the sweeping vistas of Wyoming and Texas, the film tells the story of two young men - a ranch hand and a rodeo cowboy - who meet in the summer of 1963, and unexpectedly forge a lifelong connection, one whose connections, joys and tragedies provide a testament to the endurance and power of love.

Heath Ledger didn't even have to audition for the role. He didn't even meet the director Ang Lee until after he got the part.
Lee was impressed by Ledger's work in Monster's Ball.
The budget for the movie was $13 million. It was Lee's lowest budget in years.
The location for the movie was near Calgary in Alberta, Canada, as it was less expensive to film there than Wyoming.
The director studied cowboy culture with Proulx, who lived in north-east Wyoming and gave him a tour of the area, and McMurtry, who showed him around the ranches in his native Texas.
Michelle Williams met Ledger for the first time on the set of Brokeback Mountain. She was 23 at the time and the eldest of 5 children from Montana. She had started acting at the age of 8 with appearances in commercials for pizzas and fabric softener. There then followed appearances in Lassie, Baywatch and Home Improvement. She played Jen Lindley for all 6 seasons of Dawson's Creek.
Williams hurt her knee on the set of the film.
Williams was cast not because of her role in Dawson's Creek. Lee had not even seen one episode of the show. Indeed, she was cast for her role in the 2003 minor hit film The Station Agent.
The cast of The Station Agent were nominated for a Screen Actors' Guild nomination for Best Acting Ensemble.
Williams flew to Los Angeles from New York to read for the role in front of Ang Lee.
