Lincoln

Anyone who knows me and who knows Drew would not be surprised to hear that we are history buffs.  So of course we had to see "Lincoln".

I really liked this movie. Spielberg's focus was on Lincoln the man, not Lincoln the folk hero we saw in so many Hollywood movies.  Set in the winter of 1865, the storyline revolves around the political wheeling and dealing involved in passage of the 13th Amendment.  We also get a real feel for Lincoln's relationships with his wife and his sons.

And may I add, Tommy Lee Jones deserves an Oscar for his portrayal of Thaddeus Stevens?
