Genre : History/Drama
Country : USA
Daniel Day-Lewis : Abraham Lincoln
Sally Field : Mary Todd Lincoln
David Strathairn : William Seward
I thought it was a very strong political historical film in which Daniel Day-Lewis presents a clever piece of acting. Admittedly, American history is not my dada, but I have watched it with admiration. The whole really radiated the atmosphere of that period. There were sometimes some dry, boring dialogues … but that’s politics.
In my opinion this film should have won the Oscar instead of “Argo“.
