Daniel Day-Lewis was great as Lincoln. The setting was good too as was the atmosphere. However, the script was rather dull and there wasn't much in the way of a plot which centred primarily on the passing of a bill to abolish slavery. I didn't think much of Tommy Lee Jones' character (quite stereotyped) or that of Sally Field as Mary Todd.

The movie's watchable. Once.

This documentary retells the story of how two of his South African fans tracked him down in the late 90s.
