Eat your Peas and Go
I loved the history lesson. It is a profound part of our heritage every American should know. It really showed that Lincoln was a leader larger than his time, certainly belongs in the Presidential Hall of fame on top of Mt Rushmore. Having said that, who wants to pay $18 to see this? I caught more than a few in the audience dozing as if they were forced to listen to a long sermon -- however right the cause, listening to a legal debate on the big screen does not good entertainment make.
Majority of scenes shot in dark, drabby rooms -- everyone's clothes look unlaundered. You'd think honest Abe didn't change his clothes or bathe once in the two months the scenes supposedly took place. No wonder it can be said to have been a time in our history that was so depressing. I know a gruelling civil war is raging but couldnt anyone lighten up and wear something bright -- couldn't we have had more blue skies in celebration of the passage of the 13th amendment?
