So, I've seen the movie and read the short novel in a day. The character's from the movie to the novel are different- as Jack has curly hair, has buckteeth, thick in the thighs and butt whereas Ennis is shaggy looking, Roman nose, narrow face, muscular with a bit of a caved in chest, etc... but, I'm actually wondering your thoughts on their hair colour and simple things like that?

I'm trying to draw them both but I don't know if I should just take the colour scheme of the country boys we know and love in the film or assume one is blonde, other brunette, etc. So let me know your thoughts. This also includes eye colours and whatever else.

hello and  #$#

it's nice to see that BBM still has impact on people...!

if you look around the forum, we have been discussing for so many years, and maybe some of your questions will find answer!

but yes, i am with you.
all of ennis' behavior shows that he was afraid.
and especially he was afraid of himself, his reaction to jack, his feelings towards a man. all this fighting and the need to hit people... afraid that he might be what his father supposed him to be....

enjoy your stay here with us!  #$#
Characters, Quotes & Scenes / Ennis Being Scared
« Last post by Reny46 on Apr 27, 2019, 12:37 PM »
Is there anyone out there who feels as I do? Ennis would have done any and everything with and for Jack if he wasn't scared. By scared I mean, what his father planted in his head when he was a kid, and I also wonder if his father thought Ennis might be gay. I can not fathom why a father would show his children a dead corpse and say it happened because of two men running a ranch.
I'm new to the forum, so if I say something please forgive me. When I heard that, I was totally confused especially because he whispered it. I had to put it on closed caption just to understand but when I did I got it. "Jack I swear" meant "Jack I swear I'll always love you. Which was so beautiful but heartbreaking. :(
I somewhat agree with you. From the start, you could tell Jack was more "experienced" than was Ennis. Now the fidelity part, I liked Jack, but he was a complete slut. When he said," something I hardly ever get," hardly means you get it you are not getting enough of what you want. I never, then that's a different story. But to add insult to injury, after he would get his sex on, he'd go to Ennis is if nothing is different. I just felt that was so low down. You tell him one thing, but you are doing the dirty deed with any and everyone. He knew Ennis was a novice to all of this. and poor Ennis is sitting there being good thinking Jack is also. When I first saw the movie and he was outraged about Mexico, I thought he was just being an a**hole, then I saw it again and it came to me that he was hurt. Basically, the truth of Jack's character was shown to him. And in the early '80s, OMG! He was playing with people's lives.

I forgot to add that when Jack made the statement "sometimes I miss you so much I can hardly stand it," I noticed how Ennis looked at him, like yeah right!

Never really thought about it in those terms. But you could definitely make a strong case that nature was the glue that held everything together, no?

I think that's a really interesting idea. This would be a good topic for the Characters, Quotes and Scenes section. Maybe one of the moderators could help you get that set up?

Meanwhile, I'll start with a reply for that thread by saying that I think nature definitely played a big part in their relationship. It allowed them to have a reason to be together in that tent when they first took a chance on acting on their growing attraction and passion for each other. It was the backdrop to their entire life together in those times they were able to steal away from their other lives. And I think it was a shared love of the outdoors that helped them explore and renew their relationship each time they met up, away from the prying eyes of the rest of the world.

Thank you for that thought. I'll be interested in what other people think. Let's see if we can get this moved over to the other board for more conversation.  :)
hello I wonder if their true love was not the nature itself? what do you think please ?
