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.

“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” Abraham Lincoln

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.

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.

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!

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.
