The Last of the Mohicans is a film about Nathaniel Poe, a white man who was raised by Indians. Because of this alone, he was caught between the two worlds and never quite became a part of a certain society. This shows his breaking from society. He was on his own being his own person.
The film always shows nature. It seemed to be a big part of the movie. The opening shot, for example, was of the mountains. Nathaniel was always shown in nature and it became apparent that the Mohicans were associated with nature. When Nathaniel left Cora and jumped off the waterfall it was a big show of nature. This showed the Transcendentalist ideal about nature.
