Steven Spielberg has done it again. This visually stunning, historically accurate film follows the story of Abraham Lincoln in his brave quest for equality. Amending the constitution to end slavery was no small feat. Amid his own grief [over the loss of his son] and the daily challenges that he faced with his two surviving children and wife, Lincoln pushed forward with a love for humanity that is nothing short of breathtakingly admirable.
Daniel Day Lewis did a phenomenal job at portraying the late Abraham Lincoln; channeling everything from the late president's posture to his soft spoken [but powerful] delivery. The entire all-star cast of LINCOLN [including two of my all time favorites- Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones] deliver a memorable performance and have created a viewing experience your not soon to forget.
As a 2013 Oscar® and Golden Globe® Award-winner for his performance as America’s 16th president, Daniel Day-Lewis leads an all-star cast including Academy Award® winners Tommy Lee Jones and Sally Field. Also starring David Strathaim, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and James Spader, “LINCOLN” is based on a screenplay by Pulitzer Prize-winner Tony Kushner. The film is scored by multiple Oscar-winner John Williams.
Inspired by the true-life events confronting Abraham Lincoln and his monumental moral and political challenge to amend the United States Constitution to permanently abolish slavery, “LINCOLN” is a rich and compelling historical and human drama that has been hailed as one of the best film of the year. In-depth bonus features on the Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack takes viewers behind-the-scenes of director Spielberg’s life-long fascination with Lincoln and the 12 years it took to bring the story of one of history’s and mankind’s greatest triumphs to the screen.
