THE ENGLISH PATIENT is an epic, sweeping adaptation of Michael Ondaatje's richly layered, WWII-era novel chronicling two periods in the life of European explorer Count Laszlo Almasy, whose torrid affair with a colleague's wife is countered by the beginning of the war, allegations of Nazi sympathies, and disfiguring injuries. The patient's stay at the ruins of an Italian monastery under the care of an emotionally injured French-Canadian nurse serves as a framing device for his intriguing story.
In COLD MOUNTAIN Ada Monroe is a proper lady who accompanies her preacher father to Cold Mountain, North Carolina. She waits for her love, W.P. Inman--a sensitive man of few words--to return from war. In the process she learns basic survival skills and finds strength from no-nonsense Ruby, a spitfire who can work the land as well as any man. Meanwhile, wounded Inman has had enough of war and killing, and is slowly working his way back to Ada despite the perils of being a Confederate deserter.
