Set against a primitive and unforgiving landscape, Cold Mountain tells the story of Inman (Jude Law), a wounded confederate soldier battling nature and the weather on a perilous journey home to his mountain community, where he hopes to reunite with his pre-war sweetheart Ada Monroe (Nicole Kidman). In his absence, Ada struggles to survive and revive her father’s farm with the help of an intrepid young drifter Ruby Thewes (Renee Zellweger). Directed by Anthony Minghella from a screenplay he wrote based on Charles Frazier’s National Book Award winning Civil War novel of the same name.
