not quite what i expected. very narrow focus and time frame. worht the price of admission just to watch daniel day lewis at his craft. maybe the best acting performance i have ever seen in my 44 years!

Such a pleasure to see this actor once again master a character. Sally also nailed Mary Todd. The music was inspired but could have been less, and especially more Copeland inspired, less Sousa. Steven has his masterful team of cameras, lighting, sets and costumes do their magic. A more realistic portrayal of the black soldiers and servants might have made me trust the story more but Steven, Doris and Tony had a story to tell their way. The ending is true Hollywood, left me disenchanted.

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.

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!
