On Thanksgiving night, Mr. Myrt treated us to the evening screening of 'Lincoln'. I found it most interesting. From the research we've done visiting Lincoln-related sites this past year, and our study on and offline, we were amazed that the characters and settings seemed particularly believable.
Here's what other reviewers are saying:
- “Lincoln” is a rough and noble democratic masterpiece — an omen, perhaps, that movies for the people shall not perish from the earth." THE NEW YORK TIMES A.O. Scott.
