I finally, finally, got to go see Lincoln this past weekend. Even though all of the reviews are good due to Daniel Day-Lewis' acting and the accuracy of the historical content, I'm going to tell you IT ROCKS (and that's the only review that really matters). Whether you're a history buff or your interest is simply perked when you history is discussed, you will enjoy this movie and appreciate the story being told. I can't say enough how refreshing it is to watch a movie that tells a different story of that point on American history and to see President Lincoln in a whole new light. He was very witty and had a great sense of humor. He was like most heterosexual men and gave his wife hell when it came to expressing his feelings. He was a great father who seemingly played favorites. And above all this movie showed exactly why he was thee greatest American president.
