If you have been turned off by the seemingly "senseless" back and forth politics in the last number of years (and who hasn't been), this movie is a must see. It puts back the sense in legislative politics, with all its subtle nuances.
This story is about Lincoln's choice to support the 13th Amendment during the Civil War. It shows a moment when compromise and flexability moved the country forward, despite the rhetoric of "black and white" politics. The direction, writing, acting, sets are all suberb, but this is a very rare opportunity to see a movie that will teach you about an important moment in history and shed light on the potential for better politics today.
