The long delayed project ... churns out more cheese than a Wisconsin dairy, especially in the final reel.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Highly satisfying work.

This is a wonderful 'small' film that doesn't have the box office panache of a big budget hit, but could wind up one of the year's best sleepers.

The film travels pretty much to exactly where you expect it to go. But sometimes that's what you want.

An oddball blend of Western and soap opera.

Speaks clear and forlorn to how a company that backed Pulp Fiction could one day also back Cold Mountain.

Redford... is a comfortable fit for this setting. So is Freeman, even if he's relegated to his usual role as the wise voice in the ear of the grizzled white guy.

It's the kind of movie that you can't fault too terribly much, primarily because its heart seems to be in the right place.

[T]his is a movie to curl up with on a chilly winter's night; this is the movie equivalent of a mug of hot cocoa...
