I really wanted to like it...

I really wanted to like it: a movie about a hero of mine, with a great director and good actors; but it was slow and ponderous, and the photography was clever rather than effective. The scenes of the awfulness of war were good, but Lincoln was not quite believable as portrayed. The best actor was Tommie Lee Jones as the secretary of State, followed by Sally Fields.

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.

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!
