Just when the American people may be exhausted from presidential politics, along comes “Lincoln”.
Steven Spielberg’s highly anticipated film, set during the last, tumultuous few months of Abraham Lincoln’s life, shows a man who is passionate, intelligent and heroic, writes Charlie Moss this week.
In the film, which opens nationwide on Friday November 16, Daniel Day-Lewis stars as Lincoln, the great leader and speaker who, despite his many personal hardships, worked to abolish slavery in the United States — and was assassinated for it.
“There is one thing that pop culture has taught us,” says Moss. “We love our martyrs, and we love our underdogs. Lincoln was both.”
