Brokeback has made Ang Lee the “pride of Taiwan” according to President Chen Shui-bian. Lee returned to his home town of Tainan, Taiwan today to celebrate his mother’s 80th birthday and the town gave him a hero’s welcome, declaring it Ang Lee Day and screening Crouching Tiger and Brokeback Mountain free of charge. His brother Lee Kang, his brother’s wife Jessica Chan, and his mother Yang Si-chuang were on hand. Congrats to Ang!
