Cold Mountain

Director Anthony Minghella (The English Patient) tackles author Charles Frazier's best-selling novel. Though it purports to be a romantic saga, it's actually a thinly disguised rewrite of The Odyssey transferred to Civil War America. Jude Law is the intrepid soldier fighting to get back home. Nicole Kidman is the loyal gal waiting on the porch. Occasionally, the film gets a little too Hollywood (particularly with its cardboard villains), but the sumptuous settings and epic adventure are worth the price of admission. 155 minutes
