1992
*****
Director: Michael Mann
Cast: Daniel Day-Lewis, Madeleine Stowe, Russell Means, Eric Schweig

This exciting and visually breathtaking romantic action drama is set in 1757. Hawkeye, an adopted Mohican, tries to keep his loved one safe between the colonial armies and the natives. Daniel Day-Lewis gives another phenomenally convincing performance. The action scenes are spectacular, and set against fabulous locations and a first-rate soundtrack. Michael Mann and Christopher Crowe adapted James Fenimore Cooper’s novel.
