Daniel-Day Lewis as Abe Lincoln

http://www.dailyblam.com/news/2011/1...80%99s-lincoln



Quote:
Lincoln is directed by Stephen Spielberg and stars two-time Academy Award winning actor Daniel Day Lewis (Gangs of New York) as president Abraham Lincoln. The film will chronicle Abe's efforts to abolish slavery and end the civil war. Recent reports say that Daniel Day Lewis has not broken his Lincoln accent since filming commenced and is so engrossed in his character his “real name doesn’t even appear on the call sheet.”

Joseph Gordon Levitt (Inception) will portray Lincoln's eldest son Robert Todd Lincoln, who was the only one of Abe's children to live past their teen years. Tommy Lee Jones (No Country For Old Men) is being tapped to play Thaddeus Stevens, a Republican leader and congressman from Pennsylvania who was vital in helping Abe's efforts to rid slavery. Sally Field is set to play Abe's wife Mary Todd. Jared Harris has signed on to play Union general Ulysses S. Grant. Other actors on board the project in minor roles include David Oyelowo, Hal Holbrook, James Spader, John Hawkes, Tim Blake Nelson, Bruce McGill, David Costabile, Byron Jennings, Dakin Matthews, Boris McGiver, Gloria Reuben, Jeremy Strong, David Warshofsky and Joseph Cross.

Lincoln began filming this fall in Virginia for a targeted release in late 2012 under Disney's Touchstone label via DreamWorks Pictures.

We typically won't bother seeing a movie unless it's being shown in one of the 21+ theaters with assigned seating. We only go 3-4 times a year, and I'm spoiled by having an assigned seat, showing up 10 minutes early instead of an hour to get a good seat, no teenagers talking/texting through the film, having access to booze, etc.

Figured opening weekend we wouldn't have a problem.

Instead, all of the 21+ theaters were showing the ****ing Twilight movie.

Yes, assigned seating kicks ass. I love being able to just show up and sit down instead of having to show up an hour early to fight for a seat.

I'd love the 21+, but living in bum****nowhere does at least allow me to not fight for a seat most times. 15-20 minutes usually gets me a decent seat.

Yea, i imagine living in a smaller town, would mean less people.....so less crowds.

When you live in a big city like i do, reserved seating is a lifesaver. They usually only offer it on Weekend nights or busy holidays...obviously those are the busiest nights.

saw this on Saturday. I loved the movie and I didn't think it was slow. the pacing was pretty even throughout. yeah it's long but, if you're into Civil War history, it doesn't drag.

Kelly Leak (Haley) was in this as VP of the Confederacy, Alexander Stephens. He did damn good in that role. The guy that played Grant was good too. The movie was cast really well from top to bottom.

Jackie Earle Haley has Made a comeback over the past 4 or 5 years. I think he was nominated for an Oscar a few years ago….he played Freddy Kruger in the Elm street reboot, and was also in the The Watchmen film.

Just saw this movie last night. It was pretty good overall with some nice supporting characters. It did move a little slow though. I felt like some of the scenes with Mary Lincoln were a little dragged out.

Really good movie. The slow pacing was needed to show the full picture of Lincoln: 1) his relationship with his two sons, 2) the agony that he went through with the death of his son and the difference between how he and his wife handled it, 3) how he vacillated on the decision about whether to sacrifice the easy end of the war to gain passage of the 13th amendment, 4) to show the political intrigue and bargaining., 5) the flavor of the house floor debates in those days. There is a lot going on in the movie. Very well told important story.

The pacing can be explained by who they chose to write it. Tony Kushner is known for his playwriting ("Angels in America" omg), and the film was written very much like a play. Dialogue/rhetoric heavy, more of a focus on Lincoln's battle with the House and family-driven drama. LOVED Lincoln's monologues. You don't have to look much further than Kushner for a good ****ing monologue.

I liked a lot of Lincoln's analogies. Unfortunately I can't quite remember them right now.

I liked it, but I also went in wanting to. They did a great job making DDL the most powerful man in every scene even though he was never the loudest. DDL and Tommy Lee Jones were great. So was the guy playing Seward, can't remember his name. Guy from Bourne.

David Strathairn. He's one of my favorite actors - always great in supporting roles.

Just got back from seeing this - it was fantastic, as you would expect considering the talent involved. Loved it.

Thanks. Yeah it was great and so was he. Amazing how history can be changed by the small events like those involved in getting this vote.

Powerful stuff, to be sure, but I was expecting Lincoln's life story--childhood, formative years, the young Lincoln as he got into first law and then politics. The film starts with him already re-elected, already having signed the Emancipation Proclamation, the Civil War is almost over, and the film is basically about how he wants to push through the 13th Amendment even though his supporters tell him not to try it. (The overwhelming belief was that even the Northerners only wanted the war to end, and would not support the Amendment.) Then again, if it were called "Freedom", it would probably make little money.

Daniel Day-Lewis is great, of course, as he always is. He's definitely winning an Oscar. He portrays Lincoln in his last months as weary, slow-moving, almost telegraphing his impending death... and yet, with his occasional anecdotal speeches, displays the persuasive and subversive charm Lincoln had. (And with a few well-timed outburts, displays his passion and power.)


Excellent summary. Very well cast I might add.
