OK

I wasn't too blown away by this film. It was not so much about Lincoln himself as it was about politics and passing the 13th Amendment to the Constitution of the US. A lot of people liked it, but throughout most of the film, I was just saying "get on with it!" The personal touches with his wife and sons seemed to be an afterthought, and I never really got engaged with any of the characters. Even the war scenes were not enough to engage me. I really don't know why so many people are so knocked out about it.

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 am steeped in US History, and even I learned some new things about the 13th amendment. Fabulous acting, directing and of course writing. Doris Kearns Goodwin and Steven Speilberg are an amazing team.

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.

Lincoln

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.
