Storyline Heading
As the Civil War continues to rage, America's president struggles with continuing carnage on the battlefield and as he fights with many inside his own cabinet on the decision to emancipate the slaves.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - While about President Abraham Lincoln, this is not a comprehensive biopic but one narrowly focused on his efforts to abolish slavery and end the Civil War at the end of his presidency and life. This is mostly a big showcase for star Daniel Day-Lewis with a number of familiar faces in smaller roles, most prominently Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones. There is some war combat, but this is mostly all talk. There is some language, but overall it's clean viewing for older kids though they probably would not be interested.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent I've rarely been more aware than during Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" that Abraham Lincoln was a plain-spoken, practical, down-to-earth man from the farmlands of Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois.

USA Today Full Review
Very Good Its title notwithstanding, Lincoln is an absorbing, intellectual look at the political machinations involved in abolishing slavery, not an exhaustive biopic about Honest Abe.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Excellent Lincoln the man and "Lincoln" the movie serve to remind us that democracy and the leadership it demands aren't always pretty. But they can be beautiful

NY Post Full Review
Good It's a must-see for Daniel Day-Lewis' charismatic, subtly shaded performance as Lincoln — and an even richer one by Tommy Lee Jones — but a colleague of mine at The Post has a point in describing the film derived from Tony Kushner's wonky script as "C-SPAN with whiskers.''
