See It Big: The Last of the Mohicans


Adapted loosely from New York native James Fenimore Cooper’s 1826 novel, this lean historic action film from 1992 stands as one of director Michael Mann’s greatest achievements, featuring some of his most hypnotic vistas and kinetic sequences. It is also one of his purest love stories, between Nathaniel “Hawkeye” (Daniel Day-Lewis), the adopted white son of a Mohican warrior, and Cora (Madeleine Stowe), an English general’s daughter. Set in 1757 during the French and Indian War, the story takes place in the Adirondacks region, centering around Fort William Henry. The Museum is presenting the film as part of its major summer series "See It Big at the ’90s Multiplex." The film screens on June 16 at 7:15 p.m. and June 18 at 3:15 p.m. $15 adults / $11 senior and students / $9 youth (ages 3–17).
