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!

Compelling movie and Oscar quality performances by Daniel Day Lewis as Lincoln and Billy Bob Thornton as Thadeus Stevens. Speilberg hits a home run for best director.

This is one of those movies where, when you go to see it, you feel satisfied that you spent the money! Excellent acting, great story telling. I'd recommend it....I've seen it twice!

I thought that this was a very well done movie. I thought that Lincoln was portrayed in a new and most human way. Lewis did a wonderful job and cemented is reputation as one of our finest actors. The supporting cast gave wonderful performances as well. I really like the way that they dealt with the political wrangling that was common in the 19th century politics. Sally Fields showed that she has matured as an actress, considering some of her other roles that she has done over the years. Tommy Lee Jones, as always, brought his A game to the film. The movie was photographed beautifully giving a true sense of the time. My only regret, though I understand it due to the limitations of keeping the movie to 2 1/2 hours, is that more was not made of Lincoln's relation with Sec. of War. Edward Stanton. What impressed me most about the cast is how close most of them looked like the people they portrayed. I really felt that I went back in time.

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.
