“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.

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.
