Spielberg Talks 'Lincoln' on '60 Minutes'

Steven Spielberg spoke with Lesley Stahl on 60 Minutes last night. The fourteen minute segment focused primarily on Spielberg's fall-out with his now 95-year-old father and the family drama involving his 92-year-old mother.

Amid talk about anti-Semitism and his hatred for this father (they reconciled 18 years ago), the final four minutes turns its attention to Spielberg's upcoming film, Lincoln.

After twelve years of research, Spielberg says that he saw Lincoln as "a paternal father figure who is stubbornly committed to his ideals."

The film focuses on the final four months of Lincoln's life as he attempts to get the 13th Amendment, which would abolish slavery, passed. We see a couple of scenes featuring Daniel Day-Lewis playing the 16th president.

Stahl describes it as a stage play with lots of dialogue as Lincoln tries to gain votes. You can find out more about the film as Spielberg and Day-Lewis participated in a special Q&A screening a couple weeks ago.

Lincoln gets a limited release on November 9 and then expands wide the following week on November 16.
