Based on Charles Frazier's National Book Award-winning novel, Anthony Minghella's screenplay is published to coincide with the Miramax Films release starring Nicole Kidman, Jude Law, Renee Zellweger, Natalie Portman, and Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
Cold Mountain is the story of Inman (Jude Law), a wounded and disenchanted Confederate soldier who embarks on a lonely and perilous return to Cold Mountain, North Carolina, to Ada (Nicole Kidman), the lvoe he left years before. Inman undertakes this journey across the South and encounters a slew of colorful characters along the way, while Ada struggles to maintain the family farm with a drifter (Renee Zellweger). Set during the turbulent years that followed the Civil War, Cold Mountain is a sweeping adventure, a powerful love story, and a portrait of a country in turmoil.
