On the night of the 2006 Academy Awards, Ang Lee candidly expressed disappointment backstage that the film failed to win Best Picture, even though he himself won Best Director. Lee added that he was especially sad Heath Ledger did not win Best Actor, as he was certain Ledger had delivered one of the great screen performances of all time. See more »
The tractor trailer rigs are too modern for the time period. At the beginning of the movie the tractor used in the film wasn't the kind rolling along the highways in the 1960s. See more »
I missed this one at movie theaters...so I tried DVD on Sunday...then again on Monday. All I knew about this movie was it's a cowboy love story, and directed by Ang Lee - the one I admire.
From the production story, I found Ang lee loved the script because it sounded like an epic. I think his movie is like an epic..if you watch his previous ones such as Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.
Anyway, I really loved the film. It was beautiful but sad, and made me end up with crying...though I knew some men I know really can't stand like this movie...but indifferent to me, I just felt those scenes were beautiful, sexy and sad.
A question... why did Ennie said "I swear..." .. for what? Would like to know the exact meaning...though I'm gonna try the book later.
