Love is a force of nature
Brokeback Mountain is one of the finest films ever made. It is certainly the best mainstream American-made film during the past decade. It is a film that defined a generation and touched hearts and minds all around the world. It is watched and studied at schools and novel on which it is based, continues to be a best-seller.
And yet, this film was denied the Oscar for Best Film in 2007 because of homophobia. What better way to correct this mistake in the Age of Obama than by giving Brokeback Mountain the honor and respect that it deserves?
