Set against the sweeping landscapes of Wyoming and Texas, this epic love story tells of two young men - a ranch-hand and a rodeo cowboy - who meet in the summer of 1963 while driving cattle on a mountain range. They unexpectedly forge a lifelong connection, one whose complications, joys and tragedies provide a testament to the endurance and power of love.

'The whole movie is a rich, spacious, passionate way of showing, not telling, feelings that dare not speak their name -- and doing so with superb intelligence and magnificent candour.' - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Screened as part of Depot's Film and Book Club (formerly Every Picture Tells a Story).
