The Last of the Mohicans script
Synopsis: The last members of a dying Native American tribe, the Mohicans -- Uncas (Eric Schweig), his father Chingachgook (Russell Means), and his adopted half-white brother Hawkeye (Daniel Day-Lewis) -- live in peace alongside British colonists. But when the daughters (Madeleine Stowe, Jodhi May) of a British colonel are kidnapped by a traitorous scout, Hawkeye and Uncas must rescue them in the crossfire of a gruesome military conflict of which they wanted no part: the French and Indian War.

His name is NATHANIEL POE. He's a few years older than Uncas.

The French and the French-speaking tribes know him as La

Longue Carabine (Long Rifle). Other frontiersmen in New York

colony and the Iroquois and Delaware-speaking tribes know

him as Hawkeye. Sweat stains his shirt. He flashes through

HAWKEYE'S POV: RACK FOCUS THROUGH THE GUN SIGHT

Five feet and fourteen pounds of rifle is elevated a half

inch and shifted left, off target. It's a precise, smooth

movement. No human quiver.

THE COCK:

holding the flint hits the iron file of the frizzen, shooting

sparks into the pan of priming powder which flashes and...

KILLDEER'S MUZZLE

CRACKS like lightning.

AN ELK:

leaps where the .59 caliber round was programmed to intercept

him. On the moment of impact...
