I was at first disappointed that Spielberg chose to narrow the story line from the original plan but it worked beautifully. Lewis and Sally Field play their roles perfectly and you forget who they are. Historically based dramas have been crowded out of the theaters by special effect action flicks which is really too bad. I am really glad that this movie was made and hope there will be more of them.

this movie is mature, and not intended for kids 1-12, but nevertheless, it is a good historical film. Im sure even Lincoln would approve of it!
its facts are accurate and its theme is good. MUST GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
