DSC Exclusive: A private screening of "Lincoln"

"Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves.”

– Abraham Lincoln

One of the greatest Americans ever lived; an inspiration to Humanity and Integrity; Abraham Lincoln - Nickname (Honest Abe), the 16th President of The United States of America. And who is better to play him in Lincoln (the movie) than the Best Actor Alive (by many people's account including mine) the ever Talented and Humble - Daniel Day Lewis.

I can't believe I missed this one at the Cinema!!

So you are cordially invited to watch with me a private screening of;

Lincoln

Actors: Daniel Day-Lewis (3 time Acadamy Award Winner - Best Actor), Sally Field (Acadamy Award Winner - Best Actress) , Tommy Lee Jones (Acadamy Award Winner - Best Suppoirting Actor), Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jared Harris

Director: Steven Spielberg

Synopsis:
Steven Spielberg directs three-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. Nominated for 12 Oscars and winner of BAFTA Best Actor- Daniel Day-Lewis.

As with the great John Ford (Young Mr. Lincoln) before him, it would be out of character for Steven Spielberg to construct a conventional, cradle-to-grave portrait of a historical figure. In drawing from Doris Kearns Goodwin's Team of Rivals, the director instead depicts a career-defining moment in the career of Abraham Lincoln (an uncharacteristically restrained Daniel Day-Lewis). With the Civil War raging, and the death toll rising, the president focuses his energies on passage of the 13th Amendment. Even those sympathetic to the cause question his timing, but Lincoln doesn't see the two issues as separate, and the situation turns personal when his son, Robert (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), chooses to enlist rather than to study law. While still mourning the loss of one son, Mary (Sally Field) can't bear to lose another. Playwright Tony Kushner, who adapted the screenplay, takes a page from the procedural handbook in tracing Lincoln's steps to win over enough representatives to abolish slavery, while simultaneously bringing a larger-than-life leader down to a more manageable size. In his stooped-shoulder slouch and Columbo-like speech, Day-Lewis succeeds so admirably that the more outspoken characters, like congressman Thaddeus Stevens (Tommy Lee Jones) and lobbyist W.N. Bilbo (James Spader), threaten to steal the spotlight whenever they enter the scene, but the levity of their performances provides respite from the complicated strategising and carnage-strewn battlefields. If Lincoln doesn't thrill like the Kushner-penned Munich, there's never a dull moment--though it would take a second viewing to catch all the political nuances.
