Purbeck Film Festival - Film Screening
7.30pm - Square & Compass, Worth Matravers - £6.00
Brokeback Mountain (Rating: 15)
Directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Ang Lee, Brokeback Mountain is a sweeping epic that explores the lives of two young men, a ranch hand and a rodeo cowboy, who meet in the summer of 1963 and unexpectedly forge a lifelong connection. The complications, joys and heartbreak they experience provide a testament to the endurance and power of love. Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal deliver emotionally charged, remarkably moving performances in “a movie that is destined to become one of the great classics of our time” (Clay Smith, The Insider). - (Ang Lee, 2006, 134 mins)

About Purbeck Film Festival
Supported by the BFI and its South West Regional Hub the Purbeck Film Festival has, in its 23 years, continued to grow in terms of venues and audience numbers. Our primary aim is to provide a rich variety of cinematic experiences across a rural area which does not have easy access to foreign language, independent and classic films. Our festival provides a perfect opportunity to compare and contrast stories and styles across a wide range of films. Such a metropolitan approach to film screenings offers the chance to increase our knowledge and literacy of the cinema and can open our minds to new or different worlds.
We hope that you will enjoy this year's programme, which has carefully been put together by our programming team, to include new films, unreleased films, classics, world cinema, British independent titles, archive and specialised films, and many titles that you can't easily see on the big screen. It's important to us that we encourage as many people as possible to share cinematic experiences within our local communities and to keep cinema-going alive. There are so many ways to consume film today, but there is still nothing like seeing a wonderful film in a fantastic setting to suspend your disbelief and keep you spellbound in darkness.
The Purbeck Flim Festival operates throughout the year and collaborates with many partners to organise screenings for charity events, and we organise open air cinema screenings at Studland, Corfe Castle and Swanage each summer. We work with INTO Film which provides free screenings for schools, and we also support local film groups. We are very much looking forward this year to our collaboration with the Jim Cronin Memorial Fund in November, and full details can be found on our website and in our Film Guide about this.
Purbeck Film Charitable Trust is a not for profit organisation and registered Charity and runs the Purbeck Film Festival and the Rex Cinema, both as community ventures.
