Synopsis Directed by Anthony Minghella (THE ENGLISH PATIENT), this Civil War saga addresses romance, friendship, and the ravages of war--both in the field and on the home front. Far more than a simple love story, Minghella's film captures the horrors of war for both those fighting it, and for those left behind. Based on the Charles Frazier novel, this is a tale of hope, longing, redemption, second chances, and faith. Ada Monroe (Nicole Kidman) is a proper lady who accompanies her preacher father (Donald Sutherland) to Cold Mountain, North Carolina. She waits for her love, W.P. Inman (Jude Law)--a sensitive man with little use for many words--to return from war. In the process she learns basic survival skills and finds strength from no-nonsense Ruby (Renée Zellweger), a spitfire who can work the land as well as any man. Meanwhile, wounded Inman has had enough of war and killing, and is slowly working his way back to Ada despite the perils of being a Confederate deserter. Law and Kidman are genuinely touching as two virtual strangers who invest all of their faith in each other, and Zellweger is astounding as the uncultured but compassionate Ruby. Rounding out the cast is an impressive array of actors, including Brendan Gleeson, Ray Winstone, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Natalie Portman, Jack White (of the White Stripes), Kathy Baker, Giovanni Ribisi, and many others....This is one stunner of a movie....Jude Law gives a breakthrough star performance....Kidman lights up the screen......[An] awesome gathering of talent...[A] lavish evocation of simplicity that, for all its showy sophistication, has an appealing emotional directness.Anthony Minghella's episodic epic of Charles Frazier's acclaimed best seller is the equal of any Civil War movie ever made....The actors deliver all around.It's a literate, lyrical screen adaptation.COLD MOUNTAIN is a studiously carpentered film, with an Odyssey-through-the-backwoods vastness that is very pleasing...[T]he battle scenes and the Civil War landscapes have beauty and majesty.Theatrical Release: December 25, 2003
