Summer is here! Wonderwall.com is rounding up the best and worst dressed stars of the month, starting with this Oscar winner’s win… Anne Hathaway has certainly turned a corner when it comes to her personal style. After a killer fashion roundup at the Cannes Film Festival, the actress continued her best dressed streak in this bright yellow Valentino getup she wore to the Bvlgari Eden The Garden of Wonders event in Paris on June 6. Her chic look included an unbuttoned shirt dress strategically buttoned to show off matching shorts underneath plus stellar diamond accessories.
Over the years, LGBTQ+ representation in the film industry has grown exponentially, but it has not always been that way. One of the first films to break ground in mainstrream LGBTQ+ cinema was Ang Lee’s Brokeback Mountain. Based on th short story by Annie Proulx, Brokeback Mountain tells the story of two cowboys who fall in love, and though society tells them that they cannot be together, they cannot help their feelings. Starring Heath Ledger, Jake Gyllenhal, Anne Hathaway, and Michelle Williams, this award-winning film touched the hearts of many with its tragic love story that lives so fondly in so many people’s hearts.
As we move through Pride month, one of the best ways to celebrate is to enjoy some of the great LGBTQ+ content that’s been created in the last few decades. As Brokeback Mountain is considered one of the best films ever made — being preserved for its significance in the Library of Congress, per Independent — it’s only fair that we re-watch it and enjoy it for all it is. Remembering Heath Ledger’s heartfelt performance, examining the harsh truths explored throughout the film, and positioning the film in LGBTQ+ cinema history, let’s take a look back at Brokeback Mountain, one of the most groundbreaking queer movies ever made.
