Lincoln

The man. The myth. The legend. The 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, bears a legacy of biographical contradiction, veiled mystique, immortalized reverence and revolution for old glory in this Steven Spielberg directed biopic work of art that the Academy Awards are wisely predicting for Best Picture.

Daniel Day-Lewis depicts the enigmatic President in one of the performances of his career; where Day-Lewis undertaken daily vocal exercises to immerse the authenticity of Lincoln’s diction.

Spielberg invites movie-goers to become entrenched in the scope of his visionary view of 17th century American life, as each chronological, story-telling arc conveys crystal clear and coherent as the next.

‘Lincoln’ sees the sealing of the Emancipation Proclaimation; obliterating slavery in the United States. The focus on the Civil War emphasizes the make-up of Lincoln’s memory as much as it glorifies it.

Day-Lewis’ accurately stoic, habitually portrayal partners a scenic insular, turtle-paced, pre-super power, transitional nation, which powerfully lures you into a Delorean to a tranquil era bygone.

In the template of ‘J. Edgar’ and ‘JFK’, ‘Lincoln’ articulately informs, visually enamors and wins the decisive vote of even the most cynical.

 UK Release: January 26
