COLD MOUNTAIN is Rated R and is 2 hours 30 minutes.

Written and directed by Anthony Minghella and based on Charles Frazier's novel of the same name, COLD MOUNTAIN tells the story of two journeys. Inman (Jude Law), a wounded confederate soldier, who is on a perilous trip home from the Civil War to reunite with his pre-war sweetheart Ada Monroe (Nicole Kidman). On his way, Inman endures the most unconscionable challenges, while encountering the most astonishing array of characters. In his absence, Ada struggles to survive and revive her father's farm with the help of an intrepid young drifter Ruby (Renee Zellweger).

T Bone Burnett co-authored two of COLD MOUNTAIN's key tracks: Like A Songbird That Has Fallen, cowritten with longtime collaborator Bobby Neuwirth and performed by Reeltime Travelers, and The Scarlet Tide, cowritten with Elvis Costello and performed by Alison Krauss. Krauss also sings the Gaelic-flavored, You Will Be My Ain True Love, a new song written and composed for COLD MOUNTAIN by Sting (who contributes background vocals to the track). Burnett and Anthony Minghella, the film's director, worked together on many of the arrangements of the traditional songs on the soundtrack. Score written by Gabriel Yared.

Writer/producer/performer T Bone Burnett, born Joseph Henry Burnett in St. Louis, Missouri, grew up in Fort Worth, Texas, where he first made records in 1965, producing Texas blues, country, and rock & roll bands and, occasionally, himself. In the early 1970s, he relocated to Los Angeles, where he still lives and works as a producer and recording artist. In 1975, he toured with Bob Dylan's Rolling Thunder Review tour before forming his own group, the Alpha Band, with others from the tour.

Burnett returned to recording solo in the late 1970s and has gone on to record numerous critically- acclaimed albums--including 1992's Grammy nominated Criminal Under My Own Hat--under his own name. In the last five years, he has written music for two Sam Shepard plays--Tooth of Crime (Second Dance) and The Late Henry Moss--and last summer composed music for a production of Bertolt Brecht's Mother Courage and Her Children by Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre Company. Burnett is currently finishing recording songs from those plays for two albums: Sahib, Songs From The Tooth of Crime and The True False Identity, his first albums of original songs in nearly a decade.

A prolific and versatile producer, T Bone Burnett has produced highly successful recordings for Sam Phillips, Elvis Costello, Roy Orbison, Counting Crows, the Wallflowers and Gillian Welch, among others. Burnett was musical director for the television documentaries Roy Orbison and Friends: Black and White Night and Down From The Mountain, about the making of O Brother, Where Art Thou?, on which he also served, along with the Coen Brothers, as executive producer. He produced music for, and scoring (with Alpha Band member, David Mansfield), Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood.

SCL SCREENING UPDATE - Thursday, February 12, 2004 2:00pm Sting has had to cancel due to illness.

THE EVENT WILL GO ON ---We anticipate a great event this evening with T Bone Burnett interviewed by Jon Burlingame after the screening of the film COLD MOUNTAIN starting at 7:15pm.

To guarantee a seat, get there early. Check-in will begin at 6:45pm.

2:00pm, Thurs.Feb.12 - We just received word from Miramax that Sting has had to cancel his attendance at this evening’s SCL event due to illness. As those of you who attended last night’s Sting concert know, he was suffering from a sore throat at the beginning of the concert, and by the end he was barely able to sing, quite hoarse from the rapidly intensifying sore throat and flu bug.


- As of 10:30am Wed. Feb.11, 2004 this screening is now FULL and RESERVATIONS ARE CLOSED (sorry, no more reservations can be taken).
