Trivia

The rather odd-looking pistol that Inman is carrying before he is captured by Confederate soldiers is an 1860 Beauregard LeMat, which was a favored weapon of many Confederate cavalrymen, as it held nine shots as well as a lower barrel with a .28-gauge shotgun load. This was the type of pistol carried by Confederate General JEB Stuart. See more »

Goofs

Ruby Thewes' cloth strips that are used as chin straps change position while she is introducing herself to Ada Monroe on the porch. They go from on her left breast, to the middle of her chest, to over her shoulder in the close up shots. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Ada: [voiceover] Dear Mr. Inman, I began by counting the days, then the months. I don't count on anything anymore except the hope that you will return, and the silent fear that in the years since we saw each other, this war, this awful war, will have changed us both beyond all reckoning.

an epic
8 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie moved me more than I was expecting, and I was fully prepared to cry. The acting mainly carried this film, with superb performances from Jude Law, Nicole Kidman and Renee Zellweger, as well as the supporting cast. These actors portrayed characters so intensely human that they lingered the remainder of the night with me, and I had trouble shaking this war drama. The costumes and cinematography were also magical, but didn't get carried away with themselves. They didn't take focus, but added to the whole effect. Cold Mountain could never become my favorite movie, as that title will always belong to The English Patient, but it's in the top five. The story itself was well developed, and stayed fairly unpredictable. I did not find myself guessing what line came next. A heart-wrenching story about humanity and war. In fact, this movie was so strongly real that it was barely noticeable it took place in the 19th century. It seemed to apply to all times.
