The Road to Human Dignity
President Abraham Lincoln is perhaps one of the most loved, the most admired president in history. Put that together with director Steven Spielberg impressive resume, Daniel-Day Lewis in the title role supported by a stellar cast headed by Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones, 2012’s “Lincoln” would obviously be a winner. Well, the film is indeed all that may have been promised and more. The timing of the film’s release was set to coincide with the 150th anniversary of the Emanticipation …

This movie had a lot of good individual parts: a really good cast, a great director, and a National icon.  However, in sum this movie didn't live up to what it could be.  The story focuses on the end of the Civil War and Lincoln's push to get the 13th Ammendment through the House of Representatives.  Lincoln talks about how he used the powers granted to him because of the war, to pass the Emancipation Proclamation, freeing the slaves.  He gives a difficut explanation …

Politics can be dull
The movie examines Abraham Lincoln's (Daniel Day-Lewis) efforts to pass the 13th Amendment in the last few months of his life. It is a detailed account of his strategy and the negotiations of the members of his cabinet, especially his Secretary of State, William Seward (David Strathairn).      The story deals with the minute details involved in making slavery illegal; conversations between pompous politicians are endless and dry and I found it boring. I would have preferred …
