Lincoln was excellent. Daniel Day-Lewis did a fantastic job -- he truly became Lincoln in this movie. Wonderful supporting cast. I would highly recommend this movie.

Very good historical writings. Daniel Day Lewis as Abe Lincoln is superb. As always Steven Spielberg was able to capture the true essence of the most important event of American history.

HISTORY AND RESONANCE - WAR, FREEDOM AND EQUALITY

This is a brilliant film by Mr. Spielberg that speaks of man's best and worst. He has presented these themes to us before and our hearts, minds and souls are better for it. The usless loss of war and the ideals of freedom and equality are common themes but never better embodied than here in this portait of Lincoln starring Daniel Day Lewis. With an engaging script by Tony Kushner and superlative performances by all, this movie draws a concise picture of 19th century America and the issues that have resonated throughout history and around the world. The view offered is not a grandiose heroic tableux but a heartfelt human vision that embraces tragedy and the need to heal a nation. Through Mr. Spielberg's artfully subtle direction we witness a war and a fight in government that reveals a man with a keen sense of humor, human nature and justice. Sally Fields in one of her most compelling roles should surely be considered for an Oscar as well as Gloria Ruben and James Spader. Excellent !

I had purchased our tickets the night before on line because I knew it was going to be a great movie and wanted to make sure we had tickets. On the way to the theater, I realized I had not checked my movie review source to see if the move was "safe." I didn't think it was necessary. Glad I did!! The review source (very reliable and family-friendly) listed the number of times God d--- was used and other profane language. WHY in the world do movie makers have to RUIN a potentially great film by injecting crude language that makes your ears bleed?? We immediately turned the car around, took our $25 loss and headed home. Not only will I not see this movie, but my children won't either. It's just not worth having to sit through vile language to see a movie. What a shame and so not needed!! I hate they got my $$$$ before I realized the content. At least my ears were spared.
