Lin­coln

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - PAY TV HIGHLIGHTS -

› Lin­coln is yet another master­piece from di­rec­tor Steven Spiel­berg, who man­ages to con­vey all as­pects of the film in alarm­ing clar­ity. The film starts on the bat­tle­field, with war be­ing waged be­tween north and south, yet quickly dis­tances it­self from that bru­tal­ity and fo­cuses in­stead on the man him­self. Re­cently re- elected for a sec­ond term, Lin­coln ( Daniel Day- Lewis) has the goal of leg­is­lat­ing against slav­ery in what at the time was a very un- United States.
