1757: the war raging between England and France in the American colonies enters its third year. Moving through the dangerous and untamed land is the frontiersman Hawkeye (Daniel Day-Lewis), the adopted son of the Mohican Chingachgook. En route to a camp in the West, he breaks up an ambush and rescues a group of English people including Cora Munro (Madeleine Stowe).
Hawkeye agrees to guide them to safety, and in doing so all their fates become intertwined as they fight to survive both the war and the wilderness. Spectacular in staging and in scope, this epic actioner is Michael Mann at his most confidently grandiose, delivering riveting blockbuster scale within an emotionally stirring story of romance, war and adventure.
An enduring masterpiece fronted by one of this generation’s acting greats, Daniel Day-Lewis, this grand adaptation of the 1826 James Fenimore Cooper features an unforgettable soundtrack by Trevor Jones and Randy Edelman.
