movies: Lin­coln, Hansel and Gre­tel and other open­ers.....

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - CONTENTS -

Steven Spiel­berg di­rects dou­ble Os­car-win­ner Daniel Day-Lewis as US Pres­i­dent Abra­ham Lin­coln in a back­room po­lit­i­cal drama de­pict­ing the cut and thrust sur­round­ing the abo­li­tion of slav­ery and the close of the US Civil War.

They say: The most-nom­i­nated film of the 2013 Os­cars (though tipped to, un­de­serv­ingly, win few), it has en­joyed ex­cep­tional box-of­fice for an his­tor­i­cal drama at home in the US.

We­say: Sets new stan­dards for trans­portive pe­riod dra­mas and pro­vides an elec­tri­fy­ing glimpse of pol­i­tics con­ducted in an era with­out elec­tric­ity, com­bus­tion en­gines or glob­al­i­sa­tion. Hugely rec­om­mended. (Report, Page 12.) Run­ning time 153 min­utes. Screens at Robina, Pa­cific Fair, Aus­tralia Fair, Coolan­gatta, Tweed City, The Arts Cen­tre Gold Coast, Har­bour Town, Nerang.
