'Lincoln' the movie starring Daniel Day Lewis and directed by Steven Spielberg My favorite movie!!!!
LINCOLN (2012) PG-13 150 minutes Director Steven Spielberg takes on the towering legacy of Abraham Lincoln, focusing on his stewardship of the Union during the Civil War years. The biographical saga also reveals the conflicts within Lincoln's cabinet regarding the war and abolition.Two Full Sail grads worked on the Steven Spielberg film #Lincoln, starring Daniel Day Lewis as Honest Abe.
Lincoln (2012). As the Civil War continues to rage, America's president struggles with continuing carnage on the battlefield and as he fights with many inside his own cabinet on the decision to emancipate the slaves. Director: Steven Spielberg Writers: Tony Kushner (screenplay), Doris Kearns Goodwin (book) Stars: Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, David Strathairn
Lincoln (2012) - American epic historical drama film directed and produced by Steven Spielberg, starring Daniel Day-Lewis as United States President Abraham Lincoln and Sally Field as Mary Todd Lincoln. The film is based in part on Doris Kearns Goodwin's biography Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln, and covers the final four months of Lincoln's life.
Lincoln (2012) directed by Steven Spielberg, based on the book by Doris Kearns Goodwin, starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, David Strathairn, Tommy Lee Jones and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. "As the Civil War continues to rage, America's president struggles with continuing carnage on the battlefield and as he fights with many inside his own cabinet on the decision to emancipate the slaves."
This was a very good film. Daniel Day Lewis was perfect in the role as Abraham Lincoln. I believed he captured every nuance of Lincoln's character. Sally Field's portrayal of Mary Todd Lincoln was every bit as well done. I highly recommend you watch this movie.
"Lincoln" 2012 - Daniel Day Lewis, Sally Field, David Strathairn, James Spader, Hal Holbrook, Tommy Lee Jones, Actors - Steven Spielberg, Director - Definately Academy Award caliber - A magnificant lesson in history.

Circling the Sun brings to life a fearless and captivating woman—Beryl Markham, a record-setting aviator caught up in a passionate love triangle with safari hunter Denys Finch Hatton and Karen Blixen, author of the classic memoir Out of Africa. Brought to Kenya from England as a child and then abandoned by her mother, Beryl is raised by both her father and the native Kipsigis tribe who share his estate. Her unconventional upbringing transforms Beryl into a bold young woman with a fierce love of all things wild and an inherent understanding of nature’s delicate balance. But even the wild child must grow up, and when everything Beryl knows and trusts dissolves, she is catapulted into a string of disastrous relationships. Beryl forges her own path as a horse trainer, and her uncommon style attracts the eye of the Happy Valley set, a decadent, bohemian community of European expats who live and love by their own set of rules. But it’s the ruggedly charismatic Denys Finch Hatton who ultimately helps Beryl navigate the uncharted territory of her own heart. The intensity of their love reveals Beryl’s truest self and her fate: to fly. Set against the majestic landscape of early-twentieth-century Africa, McLain’s powerful tale reveals the extraordinary adventures of a woman before her time, the exhilaration of freedom and its cost, and the tenacity of the human spirit.
