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.

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!

This movie really speaks to our time and politics. It is so ironic how history repeats itself. The issues then were the Union itself and the end of slavery, two conflicting ideals and how Lincoln navigated both politically. Very fascinating. The acting was superb. Lewis will get his 3rd Oscar.

Historically this movie was great. It was very long and drawn out without very much dynamic transitions. I would like to have seen more drama vs. "story" telling. Needs to be seen but I probably wont watch it again.

THE BEST MOVIE OF THE YEAR. Give Daniel Day - Lewis the Academy Award. Sally Field should be up for Best Actress, and either Joseph Gorden - Levit, Tommy Lee Jones or Donald Straithan best supporting actor nominations. Everything about this movie was fabolous, this is a MUST SEE FOR EVERYBODY, but don't take my word for it, see it for yourselves.
