Abraham Lincoln, a visionary, a President, a Republican. A man with ideas and ideals of what this country could become. The story of one man pushing to pass America’s 13th Amendment to abolish slavery and save us from a terrible war that was destroying our country.
At this point in time, the country was being ripped apart at the seams. A terrible war had taken over between the north and the south over an issue of race and equality. Abraham Lincoln stood in the divided and brought together two seemingly untied sections of our country. The movie focuses not just on Lincoln’s life, but the struggles endured to get the 13th Amendment passed and restore this country once again to greatness.
The movie brings you into the lives of many who had a hand in shaping this nation. The conversations and speeches are remarkable. Lincoln is a man of many stories, all with seemingly untold plots, but all with well spoken manners and an always dramatic finish. The legacy of a man in history, who had an idea. Who fought hard over so many obstacles to set an example for freedom.
Lincoln is complete work of poetry and art. The cast is a complete rendition of the past, portraits of actual events and actual people who lived and worked during this era. There have been many great moments in history, well documented, but the representation of these characters is breathtaking. From the astonishing role of Lincoln himself, played by Daniel Day Lewis, to the ever memorable Sally Fields as his wife, to the always moving Tommy Lee Jones. The cast is directed by none other than Steven Spielberg himself, an icon in films.
Lincoln is not just a movie about history, it is the beginning of a new era in history that one should not miss. The cinematics are nothing short of a Spielberg work of art. The Bluray edition is a must have in your collection of fine movies, as this is not only an award winning movie, but an actual piece of history in the books and on the screen.
