“Steven Spielberg directs Daniel Day-Lewis in “Lincoln,” a revealing drama that focuses on the 16th President’s tumultuous final months in office. In a nation divided by war and the strong winds of change, Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country and abolish slavery. With the moral courage and fierce determination to succeed, his choices during this critical moment will change the fate of generations to come.”

Abe is a tough character to be sure, but I have no doubt that Day-Lewis is fit for the task. What I wouldn’t give to watch him stay in character for a day off-screen. Even though I believe Lincoln will have a deliberately unhistorical, glorified representation of Lincoln as a man and president, I believe this will be an entertaining film to the ’nth degree. Anything that smells of history is a welcome change to the ever-growing number of super/action films. In fact, there’s loads of potential in Lincon’s life story that has yet to be explored in motion pictures.
