Saturday Night at Market Chess Cinemas

On this Fourth of July weekend, it is worth going back to just before the American Revolution with The Last of the Mohicans (1992), set in 1757 during the French and Indian War. Fought mostly here in present-day America, the result of the war (a British victory over France, with both sides fighting alongside Native American allies) would set the stage for the Revolutionary War several years later. 

The film headlines a rising Daniel Day-Lewis and Madeleine Stowe in her prime. Also noteworthy is the 
memorable soundtrack, which features the song "I Will Find You" by Clannad. The main theme of the film is taken from the tune "The Gael" by Scottish singer-songwriter Dougie MacLean.
