Cold Mountain: The Journey from Book to Film Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the tradition of the Newmarket Moviebooks on Chicago, Frida, and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon — the fascinating, full-color companion of the new film from the director of The English Patient and The Talented Mr. Ripley.

Coming from Miramax Films in December 2003, Cold Mountain stars Jude Law, Nicole Kidman, Renée Zellweger, Natalie Portman, Giovanni Ribisi and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Directed by Academy Award-winner Anthony Minghella, who also wrote the screenplay, Cold Mountain is based on Charles Frazier's best-selling Civil War novel of the same name and tells the story of Inman (Law), a wounded confederate soldier who is on a perilous journey home to his mountain community, hoping to reunite with his pre-war sweetheart, Ada (Kidman). In his absence, Ada struggles to survive, and revive her father's farm with the help of intrepid young drifter Ruby (Zellweger). The Newmarket Pictorial Moviebook is annotated with illustrations, movie stills, production design sketches keyed to the screenplay, costume designs, sidebars, and commentary from the cast and crew.

Book News Annotation:

Chronicles the process of transposing Charles Frazier's novel into a screenplay, casting actors for the major roles, designing the sets and costumes, scheduling the production, filming the battle scene, scoring the music, and editing the final product. Numerous color photographs, excerpts from the novel, and actor reflections are sprinkled throughout, making the book a fun gift for fans of the film.

About the Author

Anthony Minghella's first film as a writer/director — Truly, Madly, Deeply — was a great success both in Britain and in the United States, winning several awards. The English Patient, which he adapted for the screen and directed, has won more than 30 awards — among them nine Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director, two Golden Globe awards, and six BAFTAs. The Talented Mr. Ripley, which Anthony adapted for the screen and directed, was nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Adapted Screenplay, and for seven BAFTAs, including Best Film, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay.

Charles Frazier grew up in the mountains of North Carolina. He now lives in Raleigh with his wife and daughter, where they raise horses. Cold Mountain is his first novel.

Dan Auiler is the author of Vertigo: The Making of a Hitchcock Classic, Hitchcock's Notebooks, and Billy Wilder's Some Like It Hot.
