The film adaptation was directed by Creator/AngLee and starred Creator/HeathLedger as Ennis and Creator/JakeGyllenhaal as Jack. It got a lot of attention before it premiered simply for the premise; soon it was widely known as "the gay cowboy movie"[[note]]Even though they were shepherds, not cowboys[[/note]]. Between praise from many film critics and massive controversy thanks to MoralGuardians, the modestly-budgeted film became a profitable box-office success. It evoked some HypeBacklash and inspired '''many''' spoofs, but it also touched a lot of hearts. At the end of the day, the film won Oscars for Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Original Score. Arguably it was remembered even more fondly following Heath Ledger's death.

* StepfordSmiler: Lureen comes across as this in the scene where she tells Ennis about Jack's death--she's mostly stoic, but several moments indicate that she's struggling not to burst into tears.

* NoBisexuals: Some people are annoyed that this is referred to as the gay cowboy movie and Jack and Ennis are commonly called gay, when in fact they are actually bisexual, and bisexual activists have used this movie as an example of 'bisexual erasure.' This may well be accidental, however, considering most of the people who refer to the film as "the gay cowboy movie" [[CriticalResearchFailure haven't actually watched it (given that they're not cowboys either).]]

* BuryYourGays: In the final stretch, [[spoiler: Jack is killed in what is said to be an accident, but Ennis suspects otherwise]]. This is somewhat justified due to the setting and time period. A key reason Ennis keeps his feelings close to the chest is because [[spoiler: as a child he saw what became of a gay man who didn't hide his orientation (and doesn't even discount the possibility his own father helped kill the man); thus his suspicions later]].

* AbusiveParents: In the story, upon visiting Jack's parent's [[spoiler:after his death,]] and meeting his father, Ennis remembers one particularly chilling story about how his dad punished him for his inability to get the hang of using the bathroom.
** ''"...He had been about three or four, he said, always late getting to the toilet, struggling with buttons, the seat, the height of the thing and often as not left the surroundings sprinkled down. The old man blew up about it and this one time worked into a crazy rage. “Christ, he licked the stuffin out a me, knocked me down on the bathroom floor, whipped me with his belt. I thought he was killin me. Then he says, ‘You want a know what it’s like with piss all over the place? I’ll learn you,’ and he pulls it out and lets go all over me, soaked me, then he throws a towel at me and makes me mop up the floor, take my clothes off and warsh them in the bathtub, warsh out the towel, I’m bawlin and blubberin. But while he was hosin me down I seen he had some extra material that I was missin. I seen they’d cut me different like you’d crop a ear or scorch a brand. No way to get it right with him after that."''
