Brokeback Mountain

One of the most talked about movies across the nation is not found here in the panhandle.

Brokeback Mountain starring Jake Gyllenhall and Heath Ledger was released almost a month ago, but if you are looking to see this movie in theatres you are going to have to travel away from Panama City.

Brokeback Mountain is the latest film in a long line of racy films to come out of Hollywood.

Brokeback is about two cowboys out in Wyoming during the 1960's that end up falling in love. Some scenes are explicit, and it is rated R.

The content is for older viewers, but theatres across the panhandle are not showing this film.

After talking to theatre managers, they say the call comes from corporate offices. No one locally decides what movies are brought to our theatres.

Some residents in Bay County are interested and say they would like to view the movie. Others, though, say a film lauding the gay life style has no business being shown here.

It is being shown in theaters in Tallahassee.
