I'm a little bit of a history nerd.
I went to see Gettysburg in theaters. All four hours of it. And I loved it.
That's how badly I crush on all things historical, presidential, and Americana related!
So, when I heard that Dreamworks Pictures was working on a Abraham Lincoln movie, starring Daniel Day Lewis? I was so excited!
I am in awe of how much Daniel Day Lewis resembles Lincoln!
Here's a little about the film:
Steven Spielberg directs two-time Academy Award® winner Daniel Day-Lewis in “Lincoln,” a revealing drama that focuses on the 16th President’s tumultuous final months in office. In a nation divided by war and the strong winds of change, Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country and abolish slavery. With the moral courage and fierce determination to succeed, his choices during this critical moment will change the fate of generations to come.
Sounds amazing, right?
Starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, David Strathairn, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, James Spader, Hal Holbrook and Tommy Lee Jones, “Lincoln” is produced by Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy, with a screenplay by Tony Kushner, based in part on the book “Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln” by Doris Kearns Goodwin.
LINCOLN opens in select theatres on November 9th and expands on November 16th!
