Lincoln

Caught up with the film of Lincoln, and loved it. I’d been warned that it was a bit long, a bit heavy, not much happening. Not for me. I’m a huge fan of the scriptwriter Tony Kushner, and just as interested as he is in the devious ways of political intrigue. The whole creation of the period, atmosphere and physical setting is totally convincing, and the acting terrific – Day Lewis, of course, but not just him. Lots of varied individuals, chipping in a range of contributions to add up to an awesome whole.
