Adapted from the short story of the same name by Annie Proulx , the screenplay was written by Ossana and Larry McMurtry.

Focus Features would co-produce it alongside River Road Entertainment as well as distribute the film. Ledger and Gyllenhaal's casting was announced in , and filming subsequently commenced in various locations in Canada in The film received critical acclaim, mainly for Lee's direction and Ledger, Gyllenhaal, and Williams's performances, and was placed on many film critics' top ten lists. Brokeback Mountain was also a subject of controversies, such as its loss to Crash for the Academy Award for Best Picture in an upset as well as criticism from conservative media outlets. Conversely, while the sexuality of its characters has been heavily discussed, Brokeback Mountain has also been regarded as a stepping stone for the advancement of queer cinema into the mainstream.

Only weeks after its release in the United States, "Brokeback Mountain" is on the verge of being embalmed in importance. A lightning rod for attention even before it opened, the film has earned plaudits from critics' groups along with predictable sneers, and it has provoked argument over its gay bona fides. That "Brokeback" is a landmark is a matter of empiricism; its merits as a work of art are a matter of taste. What has gone missing is that this is also that rare American film that seamlessly breaches the divide between the political and the personal, the past and the present. Here, against the backdrop of that mythic territory of rugged individualism and the Marlboro Man, is a quietly devastating look at masculinity and its discontents. Jack and Ennis, the lovers played by Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger, marry unhappily, but their wives pose far less of a real threat to their happiness and physical well-being than do other men - those overbearing fathers, bullying bosses, leery strangers and lead-pipe-wielding thugs who shadow their affair from start to heartbreaking end. On Brokeback Mountain, away from what Whitman called "the clank of the world," Jack and Ennis are free to follow their own Whitman again "paths untrodden. On Brokeback, the two men are neither straight nor gay; they are lovers, which probably accounts for the category confusion that has greeted the film. That "Brokeback Mountain" quickly and jokingly became known as "the gay cowboy movie" speaks to the unease surrounding the film's subject, but it also reflects an unfamiliarity with both the West and the western. The image of the cowboy looms large in the popular imagination, even if the heyday of the actual cowboy was relatively short.
