    Story

    Ennis del Mar and Jack Twist, two ranch hands, come together when they're working as sheepherder and camp tender one summer on a range above the tree line. At first, sharing an isolated tent, the attraction is casual, inevitable, but something deeper catches them that summer.

    "Have both: movie and book"
    Overall

    The movie and the book are complementary to each other. It is one of the best adapted screenplay.

    The movie expanded some plots: the father-son relationship between Jack/Ennis and Jack's father;(The father-son relationship is a quite constant theme in Lee Ang's film); the father-daughter relationship between Ennis and Alma Jr.; the fidelity of Jack;the marriage of Jack and Lurren and so on...
    The movie gives more vivid life of characters which is quite difficult to be portriated in a short novel; or in the other veiw, the *short* novel delibrately omits these aspects, so to focus on the two cowboys.

    The novel goes to a deeper aspect of the inner world, especially the dreaming of Jack which is not dealt with in the movie. At the beginning of the novel, it writes: '...yet he is suffused with the sense of pleasure, because Jack Twist was in his dream...' The novel ends with: '...Around that time Jack begans to appear in his dreams...He will wake, sometime in grief, sometimes with the old sense of joy and release. The pillow sometimes wet, sometimes the sheet. The was some open space between what he knew and what he tried to believe, but nothing can be done about it. And if you can fix it, you gotta stand it.'

    Campbell Scott gives a quite good narration. The narration is as good as the voices of Jack and Ennis in the movie.
