Cold Mountain - The Never-Aging Baby?
At the end of the movie, Ada and her friends and family members are having a meal together. Sitting to her right is Sarah, and in her lap is her son, Ethan. However, this scene takes place AT LEAST 10 years after the end of the Civil War, and as proof of that Ada has a daughter from Inman (I'm not sure her name) that makes a brief appearance. However, wouldn't that make Ethan a pre-teen/teenager and not a baby? Sarah did not remarry in those ten years, otherwise her husband would be at the picnic, so the baby has to be Ethan....unless she had the child out of wedlock, but that is so out of the plot it is only logical to assume the child is Ethan. So is Ethan the never-aging child of Cold Mountain, or is this a slip-up!? Comments, please!

No, you have it all wrong! On Ada's right at the end was RUBY! Not Sara. The baby on Ruby's lap is not Ethan, it is Ruby's child (with Georgia I believe). And, by the way, Ada's daughter's name is Grace Inman.

I'm surprised that you thought it was Sarah sitting at the table. How could someone misrepresent so badly what really happened in the movie?? Yes, it was RUBY sitting there with HER children (I also agree that one is to presume that they are Georgia's kids also)........ I also watched the special features and the deleted scenes. Sarah kills herself after Ethan dies from some illness..........

By the way... Ethan and Sarah are dead. After the yankees are killed, the baby dies en sarah commits suicide. (scenes were not in the movie, but as an extra feature on DVD))
