The Last Of The Mohicans is a 1992 historical drama based on the classic novel of the same name by James Fenimore Cooper. During the French and Indian War in 1757, Cora Munro (Madeleine Stowe) and her sister Alice (Jodhi May) are summoned by their father, Colonel Edmund Munro (Maurice Ro''ves), to join him at Fort William Henry. As the sisters are escorted by British soldiers, their friend Major Duncan Heyward (Steven Waddington), and a guide named Magua (Wes Studi), Hurons suddenly ambush them. While the Indians slaughter the soldiers, Magua, who is angry at the British for a past wrongdoing, unexpectedly reveals himself as the leader of the Hurons. Fortunately, Mohican Indian (Russell Means), his son Uncas (Eric Schweig), and his adopted, white son Hawkeye (Daniel Day-Lewis) rescue Duncan, Alice, and Cora. When they manage to escape, Magua becomes enraged and follows them in order to seek his revenge.
