Two-time Academy Award winner Daniel Day-Lewis delivers one of his most powerful performances in this revealing drama that focuses on the 16th President’s tumultuous final months in office. In a nation divided by the strong winds of change, Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country and abolish slavery. With moral courage and a fierce determination to succeed, his choices during this critical moment change the fate of generations to come. With a beautifully nuanced screenplay by Pulitzer Prize winner Tony Kushner, and a supporting cast featuring Sally Field, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, John Hawkes, and others, Spielberg’s Lincoln is a masterful portrait of American history.
