Very Helpful in understanding the movie 13 Feb. 2013
By Geneviere - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Reading the screenplay was really helpful be/c even though I saw the movie 3 times, I could not follow the multiple political affiliations of major players. At times it seemed as if someone was an enemy of Lincoln, but in fact, that individual was of the same party, but merely an extremist within the party.

Though the movie was fantastic, it was not entirely self explanatory without a lot background in history, so the screenplay helped fill in and add depth to the movie.

But reading the screen play is no substitute for seeing the movie. Also, reading the screen play first won't help, you gotta see the movie first ... then read the screenplay.

A film and script for the ages 18 April 2013
By David Cope - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Film dramatizes a major moment in American history, with the complexities of both the moral high ground and the shady world of deal-making, all that laid bare. Yet it doesn't stop there--subplots involving the crippled and destructive relationship of Abe and Mary, the anger of son Robert at not being free to pursue his own life, with the horrors of the final months of the Civil War as backdrop. Day-Lewis deserved Best Actor in what I would call a career-defining performance in a career full of career-defining performances--best of the best--yet the entire supporting cast was stellar, all of them aware of the rounding of character, the nuances contained in Tony Kushner's stellar script (buy the book, too--worth every penny for anyone who loves the dramatic text). This is a film for the ages, and while I feel Steven Spielberg and the others were robbed by lesser films at the Oscars, I am certain that this one will be for viewing decades from now.

Worthy of the Oscar 18 May 2013
By F. Bluhm - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
One has only to read through Tony Kushner's script to see why it took the Oscar for best "adapted" screenplay. Inspired by Doris Kearns Goodwin’s critically acclaimed "Team of Rivals," "Lincoln is a must read for all aspiring screenwriters. Read the script to see how a master screenwriter teaches us about the incredible role one man played to shape our nation's history. Then watch how one of our greatest story tellers, Steven Spielberg, interprets the script into what was, in my view, the best picture of the year.

Relive the powerful film through the stunning screenplay 1 May 2013
By Alan W. Nielsen - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Kushner's writing is terse, dramatic and believable. The structure of the plotting is also clear and tightly driven. If you've seen the film, revel in the writing that anchors the acting and directing.
