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.

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!

I really enjoyed the scenes where everyone would watch Lincoln with admiration and awe…probably because that is what I was doing also.
In my opinion, Daniel Day Lewis did a terrific job portaying Lincoln.

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!

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.
