Watch the premiere of 'Cold Mountain' only on Star Movies

Mumbai, October 17, 2005: Separated by war, the one thing that kept them together was their love. In a time of hardship and struggle, their courage to survive for each other made a beautiful tale in Cold Mountain, that will premiere on Friday, October 21, 2005 at 9:00 p.m. only on STAR MOVIES. The movie was a smash hit, earning $173,013,509 at the worldwide box office.

Cold Mountain tells the story of a wounded Confederate soldier named Inman who struggles on a perilous journey to get back home to Cold Mountain, North Carolina, as well as to Ada, the woman he left behind before going off to fight in the Civil War. Along the way, he meets a long line of interesting and colorful characters, while back at home, Ada is learning the ropes of managing her deceased father's farm with Ruby, a scrappy drifter who assists and teaches Ada along the way.



"Cold Mountain consists of some of the most masterful and absorbing filmmaking of the year."

- Boston Globe

"Minghella once again has achieved the miracle of transforming a difficult book with an inner narrative into a deeply satisfying film." - CNN

"Anthony Minghella has crafted a lush film resounding with blue-ribbon production values."

- Palo Alto Weekly

Cold Mountain has Hollywood's biggest stars headlining the epic film. Watch Jude Law (The Aviator), Nicole Kidman (The Interpreter), Renee Zellweger (Bridget Jones's Diary), Natalie Portman (Garden State), Philip Seymour Hoffman (Almost Famous), Giovanni Ribisi (Lost in Translation) and Donald Sutherland (The Italian Job) in a movie directed by Academy Award Winning director Anthony Minghella (The English Patient).

Did you know:

" Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman were both considering roles in this movie, yet Cruise was unaware of Kidman's involvement. Cruise backed out but Kidman immediately signed up.



" As of 2003, this was the most expensive film Miramax has financed on its own, with a budget of about $79 million.

" Nicole Kidman did all of her own piano playing.

" Matt Damon, Josh Hartnett, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Brad Pitt, Daniel Day-Lewis and Eric Bana were all considered for roles.

" There is a real Cold Mountain in North Carolina, located within the Pisgah National Forest southwest of Asheville. However, there is not and has never been a town named after the mountain.
