Before Eric, I enjoyed going to movies, but only was familiar with the most popular actors during that time, which unfortunately wasn't Daniel Day-Lewis; who, if you don't know, is an incredible actor.
The Last of the Mohicans is an older film (1992), but I hadn't seen it until now. The entire story takes place during the French and Indian War, and revolves around three Mohican Indians, a Colonel's daughters and an officer. It's actually a pretty epic film, with some breathtaking cinematography.
We watched it with some friends, and we had to point out which character Day-Lewis was because you really couldn't tell, that's how awesome he is. Eric says he's a method actor, which means he literally, and I mean literally, becomes the character, whether he's on set filming or not. Maybe that why he's such a good actor, and why he's won two Oscars.
Despite the film's epic-ness, it isn't longer than your average movie (which epics generally are). There's action, adventure and a love story, so it doesn't matter whether your a guy or a girl. Not saying you all follow the typical gender stereotype when it comes to movies, because I definitely don't. So, no matter your gender, I hope you see it if you haven't and I hope you like it.
