I thought I'd start a new thread with this part of the thread below on mixed relationships.
Thanks for the thought-provoking discussion. (Lest we forget...this ties in with LOTM because of the mixed-race relationship
originally depicted in the book, between Cora and Uncas, and you guys were discussing how that would have been constructed
for an audience today. so there! And by the by, I'm not averse to IMAGINING a Cora/Uncas relationship depicted on film --
even if it would never be made in Hollywood! Somehow I think Cora would have to be played by someone else, though. Either
that, or Eric would need to become extremely self-assured in his love scenes! But then, we've never actually SEEN him do a
love scene, so how would we know? --oh, this is a whole other topic, sorry. I can't seem to stay out of that realm!)
Mmmh, y-e-s, imagination works quite well for that, no problem. So, you think Madeleine as Cora is too strong or dominant to fit with Uncas? I don't know... I can imagine him being self-assured, seductive, sensual enough to make a good pair with her. Or, who else would you suggest?
