Steven Spielberg helms his long-in-the-making biopic of Abraham Lincoln for DreamWorks and Touchstone Pictures. Daniel Day-Lewis portrays the former head of state in the Tony Kushner-penned adaptation of Doris Kearns Goodwin's book Team of Rivals, which chronicles the President's time in office between 1861 and 1865 as he dealt with personal demons and politics during the Civil War. Sally Field leads a co-starring cast that includes Tommy Lee Jones, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Academy Award nominee John Hawkes.

Lincoln 4.1 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 29 reviews.

I love Steven Spielberg's work, and this movie again proves his artistry. But, again, everyone involved with the making of "Lincoln" deserves to be acknowledged for their own participation and artistry. This film educated me in the political times of President Lincoln, his Cabinet Members, Soldiers, and the political (and sometimes shady) dealings during the Civil War. The cast is outstanding and I felt like I traveled back in time to the 1860's, and with that being said, I'll add the word engrossing to sum up this terrific film.

This is a top tier reflection upon the latter segment of Lincoln's presidency. Daniel Day Lewis is superb. Sally Field is excellent as Mary Lincoln. The constant state of despair and her, sometimes, erratic behvaior is true to order. The acting and situational dialogue is fantastic. On a scale of 10, a high 9, 9.6, 9.7. The historical accuracy is significant. The Congressional debates and banter are classic. I will watch this movie 2 - 3 times each and every year. I rate this with A Beautiful Mind as first rate biography. Spader is wonderful, what an actor. Gordon-Levitt must have lived his previous life in the mid-1860's. David Strathairn might be the best of the lot. An epic that legitimately inspires. This is must see for any Civil War history class. It is understandable at most any level. This is a once in a decade movie, the Forrest Gump of the 2010's. Take a bow cast and directional/productional crews. This is as good as it gets. Thank you.

This is an excellent film on the life of President Lincoln and the years of Civil War. Well done, great casting, and it shows the deeply emotional side of a man at a critical time in his life and the life of this country. Academy award winning in my book.

Wonderful movie.

Lincoln ceased to be a movie and became a time machine transporting the viewer to the civil war era. Daniel Day Lewis became Lincoln with the other actors joining the magical transformation to historical individuals. It was fascinating to see the machinations behind the emancipation proclamation and the complex reasons for its passage.

This is a movie for all American History teachers to show their students history during the time of President Lincoln's term as president.

This is an excellent historical movie. The dialogue, the scenery, the acting, the directing, all of it is SUPERB. I was totally engaged from the first scene until the end. It was so breathtaking to have the opportunity to "see" Lincoln's thoughts, his pain about the issues and then his resolution to do the right thing as mandated by our constitution. All of the cast were superb. I recommend this movie for all citizens who want a great view at a true statesman who is also a great family man. retired2013

This movie proves that politics over the years hasn't changed much. Daniel Day-Lewis WAS Lincoln. He is a superb actor and while there is a lot more talk than action, I was never bored. Sally Field did a great job as Mary Todd Lincoln, a long-suffering woman with so many losses in her life. Tommy Lee Jones was wonderful to watch, also. Of course, there are no surprises to any student of American history in this movie, but it is very well done.

Highly recommended..Saw this movie in the theatre and now bought it for us at home...Excellent performance by Daniel Day Lewis and Sally Field..

There is a reason Daniel Day-Lewis is regarded as one of our best actors. He personifies our collective perception of Abraham Lincoln in a way that broadens our understanding of the man behind the history lessons and what it might be like to actually be in the same room with him. The supporting cast is no less gifted. It is so often that real life is more dramatic and spell-binding that anything a person can imagine. Watching Lincoln is just that, a slice of life that changed everything in a time when so many were resistant to change. Spielberg's signature ability to tell a story with grace and beauty in the face of ugly moments captivates, as usual. Read whatever books you like about Lincoln, but let this be the one film you view on the subject.

Steven Spielberg has tossed aside his razzle-dazzle filmmaking tricks and has given us his most mature and heartfelt movie of his storied career. His LINCOLN is a classic and always will be a classic of American cinema. Daniel Day-Lewis does not portray Lincoln, but truly IS our 16th President. At no time do you not believe you are watching an actor, but are watching Abraham Lincoln in the flesh. No actor has ever deserved the Best Actor nod than this performer. But excellent performances are not limited to Daniel Day-Lewis. Everyone in the film, from Sally Field (terrific as Mrs. Lincoln), David Strathairn to the smaller parts and even the extras are ALL wonderful. LINCOLN is a feast for the eyes and ears (a GREAT literate script by Tony Kushner), showing that great films can still be made in this era of CGI nothingness and franchise films ad nauseam.

An incredible epic of a movie about the life and times of our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln. Daniel Day-Lewis does an exceptional portrayal of Lincoln which won him the Academy Award for best actor. Watching the movie you will believe him to be Abe. Sally Field is exceptional in the role of Mrs. Lincoln. You will be transported back to the time of the Civil War and all the atrocities of war, slavery and finally the freeing of the slaves. It is a must see movie of the year!

False advertisement. Expected it to be wider than his attempts to get the Anti-Slavery amendment passed. Fine movie, well-acted, but too much talk  Jack Crane, Middleton, WI.
