As a child, I was obsessed with the life story of Abraham Lincoln. I even dressed as him one Halloween. In the film Lincoln he is depicted exactly as I imagined him. The words he speaks in the film are written by one of my favorite writers, Tony Kushner. It is poetic and mesmerizing. The politics surrounding the 13th amendment are fascinating and at times disturbing. A star studded cast brings this time in history to the screen quite masterfully. Well done.
