Event description

Description

When two young men Ennis (Heath Ledger) and Jack (Jake Gyllenhaal) meet while herding sheep in 1960s Wyoming, the attraction between them is instant. Yet their newfound love can never go beyond the solitude of Brokeback Mountain — over the next twenty years, both men marry according to societal expectations, have children, and find ways to be together without being discovered. Far from the traditional Hollywood love story, multiple Oscar-winning Brokeback Mountain is a sweeping, timeless, and heartbreaking romantic drama.


This free screening is presented jointly by Metro Cinema and Edmonton Opera as part of Edmonton Opera's Gay Film Series and Metro Cinema's Alberta Culture Days events.

To celebrate the Alberta premiere of Lilies (Les Feluettes), Canada's first gay opera, Edmonton Opera presents a free Gay Film Series at Metro Cinema Garneau. This film series showcases the best of gay cinema from both Hollywood and Canada in the last 20 years. From intensely romantic to psychologically charged, each film explores themes of forbidden love, societal norms, and the power of passion.

Edmonton Opera's Lilies (Les Feluettes) plays at the Jubilee Auditorium on October 21, 24 and 27. For more information, visit our website.

Lilies community events have been made possible with the support of the Edmonton Community Foundation.
