very good movie
Irony - Our government chose April 15th as our national tax "Dead-line". Lincoln was pronounced "Dead" on April 15th. Coinsidence? I think not! Excellent Movie - Will be watching this one again. RATING: 10/10.
@spoild No worries enjoy the site.
I sent you a PM with Site rules and instructions on Where\How to request movies etc. Cheers...
Typo "tuna" lol I don't know where that came from meant thank you for instructions.
Oh so sorry newly registered just saw comments and posted, but tuna for instructions and I will search for forum in future again sorry @Flicker2013
@spoild All requests are to be made in the forum please.
Spielberg rarely makes a bad film. Daniel Day-Lewis is astonishing, perhaps our finest actor. It's long and very "talkie", but it's an interesting and important story.
Abraham Lincoln Quote
“I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in anyway the social and political equality of the white and black races – that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race. I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied everything.”

The story is set during the last 3 months of the Civil War, and the issue at hand is the passage of the 13th amendment and the ending of the war. Very well done, I felt like I learned a lot about politics and deplomacy of that era.
Daniel Day Lewis is superb as Lincoln, as is Sally Field as Mrs. Lincoln, David Strathairn (best known for Good Night and Good Luck) as secretary of State Seward and Tommy Lee Jones as Congressman Stevens.
Stellar casting, and Speilberg brings a warmth and solemnity to the proceedings in his directing.
Solid 10/10. Wouldn't be surprised if this brings home some Oscars
@willdawg80
