What moves me the most about this scene is the incredible look on Alice's face when she makes her decision...when she first steps out on the rock, she is still in abject terror & shock, then (in beautiful slo-mo, accompanied by that pounding music) she turns and looks down towards Uncas. When she turns back, the fear is gone and peace is in her eyes. Magua has lost his power over her. She has made her choice. She takes that slow step out into space...it makes me cry every time.
