I haven’t had a chance to sit down and finally watch LINCOLN. I’ve been looking forward to this film since the very first preview was released and since I’m a history nut, I want to watch it when I have time to give it my full attention. That hasn’t happened yet but in the meantime, I have two copies on DVD/Blu-Ray for you!
The films was based on the book “Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln” which was written by Doris Kearns Goodwin. The film stars Daniel Day-Lewis, Tommy Lee Jones, and Sally Field along with David Strathaim, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and James Spader. The film’s score was done by Oscar-winner John Williams and the film was directed by Steven Spielberg.
I’ll have a full review for you soon, but until then here are some bonus clips from the film to give you a taste of it’s style and story. Sure, we all know how it ends, but I hear it’s how they tell the story that makes it brilliant.
