Daniel Day-Lewis is Abraham Lincoln! Witnessing his transformation into our 16th (and most beloved) US President is worth the price of admission alone! With a strong cast of plenty of familiar faces this film excels through its performances. It’s all dialogue. If you’re looking for a fast paced presidential adventure then look elsewhere. I’m happy I saw this not only for my love of film, or for my love of DD-Lewis and Spielberg, but also for giving me a much needed refresher course in American history. Spielberg and Co. treated this film, its detailed art direction, historical accuracy, and its characters with SO much reverence and respect. The recreation of the early 1800’s America is absolutely beautiful to look at. They deliver a film that is the ultimate tribute and sign of appreciation for such a legendary historical figure. It’s an admirable film made of the people, by the people, for the people.
