A contribution to a dossier, 'Moments of Texture', this short article responds to the closing moments of Ang Lee's 'Brokeback Mountain'. It explores the relationship with Proulx's originating short story, and argues that the poignancy of the film's father-daughter relationship is an overlooked but vital passage in the film's famous denouement.
