Editorial Reviews

Nominated for 7 Academy Awards®, this "stunning" (NEWSWEEK) wartime romantic drama directed by Anthony Minghella (THE ENGLISH PATIENT) stars heavy hitters Nicole Kidman, Renée Zellweger, Jude Law, Donald Sutherland, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Natalie Portman. At the dawn of the Civil War, the men of Cold Mountain, North Carolina, rush to join the Confederate Army. Ada (Kidman) has vowed to wait for Inman (Law), but as the war drags on and letters go unanswered, she must find the will to survive. At war's end, hearts will be dashed, dreams fulfilled and the strength of the human spirit tested, but not broken.

5.0 out of 5 stars A poetic tale of love, loss, and the will to survive January 31, 2004
"Cold Mountains", one of the best films of the year (it's a crime it wasn't nominated for Best Picture), is beautifully crafted, stirring, poetic tale of love, loss, and the will to survive. Directed and adapted to the screen by the wonderful Anthony Minghella and boasting a stunning cast of Jude Law, Nicole Kidman, Renee Zellweger, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Natalie Portman, Giovanni Ribisi, Jack White, Brendan Gleeson, and Donald Sutherland, this film is truly a force to be reckoned with.
"Cold Mountain" tells the story of Inman (Law), a carpenter working in Cold Mountain, North Carolina in 1861 when the alluring, elegant, and well-educated Ada (Kidman) and her father, Reverend Monroe (Sutherland), move to the Blue Mountains from the city. Inman and Ada, in true Hollywood fashion, are instantly taken by each other and engage in restrained flirtation, Ada's preacher father and their different social classes being the bulwark from romance. Soon the Civil War begins and the entire young male population of Cold Mountain departs in eager anticipation of glorious battle. Inman and Ada engage in one fleeting, hungry kiss before he rushes off to join the departing procession.
During battle, Inman is wounded and, after reading Ada's numerous earnest letters imploring him to return to her, deserts the Confederate army and embarks upon an Odyssey-like journey back home to his true love. Meanwhile, Ada's father has died, leaving her helpless and alone on their 300 acre farm. Soon Ruby (Zellweger) arrives and offers Ada her services in exchange for food and shelter. Realizing that she simply cannot manage on her own, Ada agrees.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking Journey of Love. January 18, 2004
Cold Mountain is a beautiful movie set during the American Civil War. A North Carolina town of Cold Mountain has sent it's beloved sons to war leaving behind Mothers and Lovers. Our two main characters are Ada (Nicole Kidman) and Inman (Jude Law) two Cold Mountain residents dedicated to there reunion after the war, but the war drags on and there correspondence is the only thing that unites them in a terrible time of American History.
The movie tells of Inman's journey back to Ada and the parrallel story of Ada trying to survive on her fathers farm. Both characters take a journey in spirit and determination to survive the horror that has become there existance during the war.
I loved the intertwining of music and drama in this movie. Anthony Mingella did, as expected, an excellent job etching the powerful feelings of hope and dismay with haunting music written by Sting and performed by the clear voice of blue grasses own Alison Krauss. I am from North Carolina am familiar with the native music of the area and thought the music in the movie very similar and so wonderful.
Although, this is a Love Story more than a movie of the American Civil War it stirred the feeling of my Southern Roots. The movie did not contemplate the reasons for the Civil War but it was a vehicle for ours lovers seperation. I found the depiction of the Petersburg battle flawed not entirely accurate to history but then again the war is not the focus in the movie.
I was in aw of the cinemontography of this movie, magnificent. A gorgeous movie that needs to be seen.
Perhaps I am biased, since I am a North Carolinian, but I thought this movie excellent, bittersweet, wonderfully acted, and crafted by the best in the movie business today. I would recommend this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sweeping, romantic epic January 6, 2004
"Cold Mountain," directed by Anthony Minghella, stars Jude Law as Inman, a Confederate soldier during the U.S. Civil War, and Nicole Kidman as Ada, the minister's daughter he loves and longs for when he leaves to fight. Renee Zellweger costars as Ruby, a feisty farmhand who works with Ada on the homefront.
This film is a period piece that has a true epic sweep, yet never loses an intimate connection with the main characters. The production design is full of fascinating and thoughtful details that make the film a joy to watch. But it's also often harrowing and graphically violent--Minghella does not flinch at exploring the injustice and brutality of humankind towards itself.
The performances are all superb. After having distinguished himself in a number of noteworthy supporting roles, Law really proves himself a great leading man here. Kidman brings both delicacy and steel to her role--a southern belle faced with daunting wartime challenges. Zellweger delivers a rich, earthy, zesty performance; she is a perfect foil for Kidman and their characters' relationship is one of the great highlights of the film. The three main actors are superbly supported by the rest of the cast.
"Cold Mountain" is often quite grim and brutal, but is leavened by earthy humor and irony. Ultimately I found the film to be life-affirming. It's a love story and a war story, but regardless of genre it's a superbly crafted and genuinely moving film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for both Romanticists and Civil War Buffs January 6, 2004
By A Customer
As a Civil War buff, I am glad to see someone doing their homework at the seige of Petersburg. The crater turned out to be a disaster for the Union army and was very accurately depicted in Cold Mountain, right down to Confederate soldiers throwing their "bayonet-fixed" muskets like spears into the mass of humanity. This scene is bloody, but not as much so as the first 20 minutes of Saving Private Ryan.
But anyway, good acting with a star-studded cast. Be warned, the movie will likely be easier to follow if you have read the book first. There are plenty of flashbacks, etc., especially in the first half of the movie, and the movie may appear to "jump around" a bit unless you're already familiar with the book. So read the book, or see the movie twice. There are about a half-dozen major scenes where the movie diverges from the book, some for time, some for dramatic affect. These are tolerable, except the scene involving Teague's homeguard band with the Swangers was not at all in the book (again, great for dramatics though). Renee Zellweger as Ruby is fantastic. Veasey (Philip Seymour Hoffman) also has some great one-liners. Georgia Boy (Jack White) is also very good (his name turned about to be Reid at the end of the book). Having not read the cast beforehand, I was surprised to see Natalie Portman (Queen Amadala) as Sara. I thought Ray Winstone did an excellent job as the ruthless Teague, who in true life was the leader of a homeguard band in the NC mountains. I wish the movie would have brought out one of his main companions better - the bizarre, blond-headed boy (named Birch in the book.) Although of fighting age in the movie, I got the impression in the book that Birch was too young to be a soldier, barely older than a drummer boy.
