Fearing for the safety of his beloved Ada (Nicole Kidman), the wounded Confederate soldier Inman (Jude Law) makes his way across the war-ravaged South, back to her farm on Cold Mountain. He faces trials and tribulations as he encounters slaves and bounty hunters, soldiers and witches, unexpected friends and dangerous enemies at every turn. Ada's road is no easier as she relies on wits and newfound bravery to protect her father's farm from attack, with the help of an intrepid drifter named Ruby (Renee Zellweger).

As they come ever closer, Inman and Ada weave a story about the longing for home after being in the wilderness, the longing for peace after being at war, and the longing for love and union in the midst of chaos.

Based on one of the most acclaimed novels in recent memory, "Cold Mountain" sets off on a true American odyssey through a time that saw some of the greatest ferocity -- and heroism -- the nation has ever known.

"Cold Mountain has it all: love, war, humor, suspense and a probing sense of what it takes for a divided America to heal its wounds."
      -- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone. Read this review.
