Cold Mountain

coldA brutal and passionate portrait of the wounds war inflicts on both the soldiers and the citizens. I didn't really buy the Jude Law-Nicole Kidman romance, however: I didn't believe that Jude Law would hike halfway across America to return to this woman he barely knew. Perhaps she was supposed to be symbolic of something: beauty unspoiled by war, lost innocence, sex...whatever it was, I didn't buy it.
