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.

Every man, woman and child in America should see LINCOLN. There cannot be one person among us who could not learn at least one thing about the extraordinary history of our country, character, faith, and love of humanity and family from our 16th president. Stephen Spielberg's storytelling inspires us as a nation to heal our wounds and move forward with hope and promise that America will indeed remain the land of the free and the home of the brave. I will be a better person and American by coming to know Abraham Lincoln, the man, through the glorious adaptation of Doris Kearns Goodwin's exquisite portrait -- and Daniel Day Lewis's perfectly crafted performance -- of an extraordinary leader who changed the 'course of human events' in these United States. Lincoln at once envelopes us with his warmth and compassion on the screen, and above all else, imbues us with his sense of honor and duty to preserve our individual and collective rights scripted by our forefathers. God bless America.

Lincoln was excellent. Daniel Day-Lewis did a fantastic job -- he truly became Lincoln in this movie. Wonderful supporting cast.
I would highly recommend this movie.

Outstanding portrayal and performance by Daniel Day Lewis, Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones. A stellar supporting cast! Don't miss this one! Probably Mr. Spielberg's best film in a decade.

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.
