Director Anthony Minghella’s (The English Patient) acclaimed 2003 adaptation of novelist Charles Frazier’s 1997 National Book Award winner stars Jude Law as a wounded Civil War veteran struggling to make the long journey back to his North Carolina home and his one true love, played by Nicole Kidman. Co-starring Oscar-winner Renée Zellweger. The unmistakably effusive strings of French composer Gabriel Yared – an Oscar-winner for his previous collaboration with director Minghella on The English Patient – lend the already epic film an even richer sense of sweep in such tracks as “Anthem,” capturing not only the majesty of the film’s backdrop but the emptiness of wartime loneliness and the sustaining power of love. The evocative harmony of piano and strings building to impassioned crescendo is repeated in microcosm in the gentler “Ada Plays” and the melancholic “Ada and Inman” while “Love Theme” leans on the mournful strains of a lone violin as it slowly enjoins the orchestra in penultimate exhale of relief and resignation.
