Product Description

Product Description

Steven Spielberg directs two-time Academy Award® winner Daniel Day-Lewis in Lincoln, a revealing drama that focuses on the 16th President’s tumultuous final months in office. In a nation divided by war and the strong winds of change, Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country and abolish slavery. With the moral courage and fierce determination to succeed, his choices during this critical moment will change the fate of generations to come. Nominated for 12 Oscars and winner of BAFTA Best Actor--Daniel Day-Lewis.


As with the great John Ford (Young Mr. Lincoln) before him, it would be out of character for Steven Spielberg to construct a conventional, cradle-to-grave portrait of a historical figure. In drawing from Doris Kearns Goodwin's Team of Rivals, the director instead depicts a career-defining moment in the career of Abraham Lincoln (an uncharacteristically restrained Daniel Day-Lewis). With the Civil War raging, and the death toll rising, the president focuses his energies on passage of the 13th Amendment. Even those sympathetic to the cause question his timing, but Lincoln doesn't see the two issues as separate, and the situation turns personal when his son, Robert (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), chooses to enlist rather than to study law. While still mourning the loss of one son, Mary (Sally Field) can't bear to lose another. Playwright Tony Kushner, who adapted the screenplay, takes a page from the procedural handbook in tracing Lincoln's steps to win over enough representatives to abolish slavery, while simultaneously bringing a larger-than-life leader down to a more manageable size. In his stooped-shoulder slouch and Columbo-like speech, Day-Lewis succeeds so admirably that the more outspoken characters, like congressman Thaddeus Stevens (Tommy Lee Jones) and lobbyist W.N. Bilbo (James Spader), threaten to steal the spotlight whenever they enter the scene, but the levity of their performances provides respite from the complicated strategising and carnage-strewn battlefields. If Lincoln doesn't thrill like the Kushner-penned Munich, there's never a dull moment--though it would take a second viewing to catch all the political nuances. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

It's January 1865 and Abraham Lincoln is worried. Not about his voters, he's been convincingly re-elected. Not even about the Civil War, which is clearly heading towards Union victory, although he would dearly like to cut short the slaughter. No, slavery is on his mind. His Emancipation Proclamation of 1863 freed the slaves in rebel territory and apparently set the ball rolling to end it forever in the USA - but Lincoln knows that after the war this and other measures he took may be subject to legal scrutiny and could be reversed. Not only would this be a great wrong, it would render futile the sacrifices made so far and sow the seeds of future conflict. So he has to secure an amendment to the US Constitution outlawing slavery once and for all.

This film is not a bio-pic about a great man, nor a history of a great war, nor an account of the ending of a great evil. It's about one episode which brings together all three, and in a surprisingly intimate manner. If the Constitution is to be amended both houses of Congress must approve the change by 2/3 majorities and it must then be ratified by at least three-quarters of the individual states. The Senate has passed the measure, the states will ratify, but first it must get through the House of Representatives where Lincoln does not have the necessary votes (but does have some inveterate enemies). Basically the film is about how the gets it through.

That makes the film sound a bit like an episode of "The West Wing" and yes, viewers will detect similarities: the engrossing political lobbying, manoeuvring, and horse-trading are all there, leading up to a dramatic final vote.

This is not so much a ‘movie’ but rather a series of beautifully lit and carefully crafted tableaux of various scenes featuring the ‘great man’, often in silhouette and in characteristic pose. Daniel Day-Lewis’s performance is almost chameleon-like and, after a while, the viewer completely forgets even the ‘muttley-like’ vocal mannerisms, as one is swept up in his remarkable evocation of the gaunt, lantern-jawed president.

The nub of the story is the passing of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution (basically, to abolish slavery). As such, if it had been called ‘The 13th Amendment’ it would not have been mis-named. There is a great deal of politicking going on: we see Lincoln as the consummate exponent of that art, ladling out home-spun apple pie homilies when necessary combined with the occasional table thump just to remind all present of the steel within the velvet glove.

There is too, Lincoln the family man, adeptly pacifying wife Mary, who is sympathetically portrayed, by Sally Field, as a skilful politician in her own right. Together they endure the torment of a son who feels compelled to go to a war she is convinced will claim him as yet another victim of that internecine carnage.

Surrounding them there is a wealth of acting talent on show prominent amongst which is Tommy Lee Jones, as Thaddeus Stevens, the Republican staunch anti-slavery campaigner, and David Strathairn, as Secretary of State, William Seward. But, chipping in with what might be the most engaging performance is James Spader, playing William Bilbo, a political lobbyist and early incarnation of the type of character one might imagine being on the books of the White House during Nixon’s inglorious reign.

The danger of a film such as Lincoln is that you risk making a film more concerned with the legend rather than an honest depiction of the man and reality but Lincoln doesn't fall into this trap and, for its subject matter, is an enthralling tale. Steven Spielberg likewise hasn't made a truly great film in years; War Horse for me suffered in part from a complete lack of sublety though the visuals triumphed and here he comes across very restrained. 'Lincoln' ironically is a rather misleading title because like 'Zero Dark Thirty', it is more of a historical account of the ending of slavery in the United States rather than a biopic of the man himself. This is perhaps the most talky of the Best Picture nominations this year but it is enthralling, occassionally tense and quite funny and as much as Spielberg deserves credit, equal credit goes to the cast. Daniel Day Lewis again delivers in one of the most extraordinary performances in motion picture history and boasts an almost devine presence as the famed American President. This is easily Steven Spielberg's best film in years; powerful, haunting as if you're looking into the past and watching history unfold. Like Schindler's List, you can almost imagine Lincoln ending up as essential viewing in American schools in the years to come but for the casual viewer this is a well made, albeit long film that is superbly acted, surprinsly funny but ultimately very satisfying.

Very rarely, a film comes along driven by a central performance of such power and verve that you realize how important is the cinematic art and leaves you pondering why it has become quite so debased. Steven Spielberg's engrossing biopic "Lincoln" is not the usual IMAX fodder and neither is it designed to make many easy concessions to the audience in terms of historical narrative or political understanding. It is based on a central part of the best political book of recent years Doris Kearns Goodwin's mammoth "Team of Rivals" and does cry out for a depth of knowledge of the American Civil War and the nature of the 13th Amendment to pass the abolition of slavery into the US Constitution. From this, you may conclude that its dry and dusty political drama. You could not be any more wrong.

At the heart of the film is Daniel Day Lewis. His performance is completely thrilling and overpowering. Kearns Goodwin has paid him the huge compliment when she recently stated that "Daniel Day-Lewis perfectly and uncannily embodies Lincoln - from the way he looks to his mannerisms, voice, speech and conviction". As an actor, he is renown for inhabiting the part but here you will never be able to think of Lincoln again without thinking Day Lewis. He embodies all elements of the Lincoln character, he owns the cinema and you realise that you are again watching the greatest living screen actor showing how it should be done. Spielberg has long harbored a desire to make a film about the greatest American President and he has found the right man for the job.
