I learned a lot about Lincoln and what a hard time it was for him and his family. I was able to stay awake which is good news for me because when a movie is boring I have a hard time staying awake. The acting was superb. At times the rhetoric when they were debating the bill was a little hard to follow. The 3 people that I went with enjoyed the movie also.

This 2 1/2 hours went by so fast it was hard to believe it was over. Fabulous cast, well written script, perfect costumes. This is a do not miss movie. If you are taking young people, it would be good to review some of the period history so they understand what led up to the events. I have NEVER been able to sit through a 2 hours movie without having to get up once and I was unable to leave my seat during this extraordinarily well done historical piece.

I am steeped in US History, and even I learned some new things about the 13th amendment.
Fabulous acting, directing and of course writing. Doris Kearns Goodwin and Steven Speilberg are an amazing team.

Just a great movie and the cast was fantastic. D.D.Lewis became Lincoln he should win an Oscar for his portrayal of this great man. Tommy Lee Jones was perfect, Sally Fields did an outstanding job as Mrs. Lincoln. The theater was pretty full for a Tuesday night and you could hear a pin drop. Just a great tribute to a great man. Go see this one.

Just like Schindler's List....................You know the story - or so you think. Then you're so INTO the story you just go with it. DD Lewis and Sally Field at the top of their game!
