Movie Review - Lincoln

Do you love history? Do you love American History? Then this would probably be a movie you'd love as well.  This film was directed and produced by Steven Spielberg with a stellar cast including Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln, Sally Fields as Mary Todd Lincoln as well as several other Hollywood well known actors such as Tommy Lee Jones, Hal Holbrook, James Spader & David Strathairn.  This film covers Lincoln's dedication and passion for passing the 13th Amendment to abolish slavery but passing this before the end of the Civil War which they are hoping to end within a month.  Daniel Day-Lewis does an amazing job portraying Lincoln.  From the stories history has handed down of Lincoln, generation after generation, it is like having a one on one experience with Lincoln and fits the image you conjure up of Lincoln in your mind. 

He was a man of great personal conviction.  An honest man that believed in equality for all. He lived a life of strong values and morals.If you are a fan of history and a fan of our nations 16th President I think this is a must see.
