Lincoln – Spielberg bio drama of his final months abolishing slavery

 

Lincoln is an upcoming 2012 biographical drama film directed by Steven Spielberg, starring Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln and Sally Field as Mary Todd Lincoln. The film is based on Doris Kearns Goodwin’s biography of Lincoln, Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln, and covers the final four months of Lincoln’s life. Filming began Monday, October 17, 2011 and is scheduled for release on November 16, 2012.

Screenwriter Tony Kushner has said that he worked on the script for six years and that he was very interested in “the relationship of Lincoln to the abolitionist GOP” and that Lincoln’s “incredible ability to finesse very, very treacherous political circumstances and continue to move the country forward, I mean, to lead the country forward in the midst of the most horrendously difficult period in its history, I think, is breathtaking and awe-inspiring.”

Oscar-winning film director Steven Spielberg says he wants to present the nation’s most iconic president — as a flesh-and-blood human being.

“Lincoln was a monumental president, but we treat him like a man, not a monument.” – Steven Spielberg

Steven Spielberg directs two-time Academy Award winner Daniel Day-Lewis in a revealing drama that focuses on the 16th President’s tumultuous final months in office. In a nation divided by war and the strong winds of change, Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country and abolish slavery. With the moral courage and fierce determination to succeed, his choices during this critical moment will change the fate of generations to come.

Watch the trailer which was released during a Google+ hangout with Steven Spielberg on September 10, 2012.
