We watched LINCOLN at the theater. Steven Spielberg directed it, and Daniel Day-Lewis stars as Abraham Lincoln. Sall Field plays Mary Todd Lincoln. The movie starts in January 1865, four months before Lincoln's assassination. For the most part, I enjoyed LINCOLN. The first forty minutes is slow, setting up the plot to follow. But the pace picks up, and the drama of the big vote in the House of Representatives for the 13th Constitutional Amendment is played out well. I liked Tommy Lee Jones as Thaddeus Stevens and James Spader playing a political operative. Lincoln tells some bawdy jokes worth a few laughs. All in all, I liked LINCOLN both for its historical content and entertainment value.
