Lincoln (Drama 2012)

So there were two things I learned from this movie; politics is some sketchy shit and that Marry Todd Lincoln was a crazy bat. I guess I can relate to some of that hu? This movie had a lot of talking...I mean a lot. If you're not in the mood for a slow and lengthy film then this is not for you.

The story was mainly the whole political struggle in getting the 13th Amendment passed to abolish slavery. It's interesting how fucked up politics were back in the 19th Century and that has most certainly not changed up to the present day.

Daniel Day Lewis and Sally Field were excellent in their roles...quite on the mark with both. Costumes were pretty authentic-looking as well. Overall it was a good film but you really have to be paying attention.
Rating - B
