You forget you are watching a movie and become completely consumed with DDL's rendition of Lincoln. I am fascinated by the focus and concentration he offers while incorporating the most amazing degree of precision. It's a remarkable accomplishment and one that will consume history classes for the next 50 or more years, incredible. The storyline follows Lincoln's efforts to spearhead the 13th ammendment through a divided House of Representatives. While that, in and of itself, doesnt lend for big screen explosions, it certainly makes for a deeply meaningful understanding of this very troubled time in our history.
