We were saddened to learn of the passing of actor Hal Holbrook and at the same time reminded that we have not yet featured Steven Spielberg's 2012 LINCOLN in which Mr. Holbrook was featured as influential Republican Preston Blair. With a script by Tony Kushner LINCOLN is the revealing story of the 16th US 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. As LINCOLN Daniel Day-Lewis characteristically delivers in this witty, dignified portrait that immerses the audience in its world and entertains even as it informs. Nominated for 12 Academy Awards including Best Picture, LINCOLN took home Oscars for Best Actor for Daniel Day-Lewis and Best Production Design. Time Magazine in 2012 said "Renouncing his tendency to make every movie take emotional flight, Spielberg sticks to the story as Kushner has artfully compressed it. Lincoln is brain food and, at another pivotal moment in American political history, an instructive feast." While the Hollywood Reporter said "Tony Kushner's densely packed script has been directed by Spielberg in an efficient, unpretentious way that suggests Michael Curtiz at Warner Bros. in the 1940s, right down to the rogue's gallery of great character actors in a multitude of bewhiskered supporting roles backing up a first-rate leading performance by Daniel Day-Lewis." LINCOLN is streaming on HBOMax and DirectTV or available to rent for a modest fee from Amazon, YouTube, GooglePlay, Vudu and others. Whether you've seen it before or are discovering it for the first time, now is a wonderful moment in time to check out LINCOLN.
