Prison Guard Disciplined Over ‘Brokeback Mountain’ Screening

A Massachusetts prison officer faces disciplinary action after showing gay cowboy movie Brokeback Mountain to jailed felons in Norfolk, near Boston.

The unnamed official staged a viewing of the critically acclaimed film on Thursday–two days after the film was released on DVD.

His bosses immediately took action, deeming the film inappropriate for a prison setting.

A prison spokesperson insists the decision to reprimand the officer for airing the movie has nothing to do with the film’s gay plot, stating, “It was the graphic nature of sexually explicit scenes.”

Officials further insist the guard failed to follow guidelines that require staff who schedule films to review them in advance for excessive violence, nudity or sex, as well as scenes involving assaults on correctional staff.
