Cold Mountain... the movie

We watched Cold Mountain on DVD last night. Being from North Carolina, I noticed an occasional glitch in the "Southern" accents, but overall it was very well acted. I've been calling it Sommersby Part 2, because of its similarities to the movie with Richard Gere and Jodie Foster. I don't want to spoil it for anyone who is planning to read the book or see the movie, so I'll avoid details about the plot.

It's a long movie and about 30 minutes in, I was thinking that I got suckered into another big-time chick movie which was going to bore me to tears very soon. But, it never did. In fact, I really enjoyed it, except for a few of the plot twists. You know, the parts where you think, "Well, I would have written that differently!" The three primary characters, played by Jude Law, Nicole Kidman, and Renee Zellweger, were expertly played by three qualified people, in my opinion. I don't pay enough attention to Hollywood to notice how this movie and its cast did at the Academy Awards, because I really don't care, but I wouldn't doubt it if you told me it won some things.

I guess, what I'm saying is that I would recommend it. It isn't particularly fast-paced, and it is fairly long, but my wife and I both enjoyed it.
