OK, Lauren, I've got more to say about that. I'm going to respond to your last comment in the "Jack's Fate" thread. Seems to fit there better than Alma/Lureen thread.

Anne Hathaway is scheduled to appear on "Live with Regis and Kelly" on January 10 (Tuesday). 
There was some open space between what he knew and what he tried to believe, but nothing could be done about it, and if you can't fix it you've got to stand it.

When I was watching BBM with my friends, it got to the scene with Lureen and Jack in the car, and she ripped off her shirt.

My friend Helena leaned over to me and said......"I saw her in "The Princess Diaries....that's a Disney movie.   Now, I'm seeing her t*ts."

rotflmao!   :D

If anyone watches this show, please come on back here and post.  We'd all love to hear about it.

I agree that this doesn't look right. In the scene, I'm sure I remember that her hair was "frosted" which I thought was so perfect for the era.

Are you talking about these two hair styles?  The first photo looks like a younger Lureen.  So, it might have landed on the cutting room floor or she might have just posed for this promo shot.

But where's the money shot?   ??? ??? ???

I want a pic of Lureen on the phone!!!   
   :P :P :P
What Jack remembered and craved in a way he could neither help nor understand was the time that distant summer on Brokeback when Ennis had come up behind him and pulled him close, the silent embrace satisfying some shared and sexless hunger.

I think Anne Hathaway gives the most under-appreciated performance in "Brokeback Mountain."

Her line readings on the telephone with Ennis make perfectly clear (to me) that Lureen is lying and that Jack was indeed murdered by fag bashers

As for other implications raised in this thread:
If Jack was murdered, what happened to Randall? I'm assuming that Jack and Randall were not sufficiently discreet in their relationship, or at least Jack wasn't. I'm totally projecting here, but my hunch is that Lureen knows exactly how and why Jack was murdered.

Therefore, the way Anne Hathaway says "You're the fishing buddy or the hunting buddy, I know that." indicates to me that Lureen has already put 2 & 2 together and figured out that Jack and Ennis went fishing the same way Jack and Randall went fishing. So maybe, for her, the big shocker is the realization that Jack and Ennis had known each other for 20 years, since before her marriage to Jack, and that Jack's wishes about his ashes being scattered on Brokeback signify that his relationship with his fishing buddy Ennis was stronger than his relationship with his wife and son.

Or maybe I'm completely off the wall here.

But I do know that Anne Hathaway gave a great performance as Lureen. And her telephone scene with Ennis will be as famous in movie history as Anna Held (Louise Rainer)'s phonecall to Florenz Ziegfeld (William Powell) congratulating him on his marriage to Billie Burke (Myrna Loy) in "The Great Ziegfeld."

I agree. Anne said in one of her interviews that she believed (and played) Lureen as someone who had built up a lot of hurt over the years and displayed this by becoming "hard". I think she did put 2 & 2 together in that phone call when she realized (and thus the whimper) that Jack's bond with Ennis started before she even met Jack...and also that "Brokeback was his place."
The huge sadness of the Northern plains rolled down on him.

Did anyone see Anne Hathaway on ''Ellen'' today? I missed it, but she was on, along with Kanye West. Check your local listings. In some cities, ''Ellen'' airs in the mornings; in others, in the afternoons and later. See her site, and visit When It's On.

Wayman it was on here in Houston at noon so I stayed in at work to watch.  Disappointing show Kanye didn't really sing--just in audience game and Anne's segment seemed very short and uninformative.  She just said she would be at Globes cheering for her "peeps".  She was able to elaborate more about the movie last week on Regis.
