Sometimes a movie doesn’t jive because the character just doesn’t resemble the person. Then again, sometimes there’s an eerie, dead-on resemblance.
Like Daniel Day Lewis as Abraham Lincoln.
LINCOLN focuses on the last four months of the president’s life and the political strategizing he undertook at the close of the Civil War to ensure that slavery would be forever outlawed. “Our movie is really about a working leader who must make tough decisions and get things done in the face of overwhelming opposition,” Spielberg says.
LINCOLN is a DreamWorks, Twentieth Century Fox, Participant Media production opening in limited release November 9, expanding November 16, 2012.
