Must See: Spielberg’s Lincoln

When I saw the first stills released from behind the scenes of Steven Spielberg‘s new film on our beloved 16th president, stills of Daniel Day Lewis, in full Abraham Lincoln regalia, I was blown away by the likeness, and I knew, given my deep interest in this period in the history of our country, that I would HAVE to see the movie.

Then today, after having read the celebratory reviews, I watched the official trailer (see below) for the first time, and it gave me chills and moved me deeply, as this story always does, the story of a nightmare of a civil war, the battle to end slavery, and the tragic, premature loss of a great leader.

So, yes, definitely a must-see.
