The problem with this made-for-television film is that it appeals more exclusively to the diehard civil war and Lincoln buffs than it does its intended casual audience. It lacks focus and its pace is sluggish, while the aspects of the narrative it does choose to focus on are not conducive to a smooth movie-going experience. This type of intense study of the events are better suited for a Ken Burns documentary. The acting by the two leads, Mary Tyler Moore and Sam Waterston, are solid but not extraordinary. All in all, a film that tries too hard to cover too much ground and fails to truly captivate as a result.

An excellent depiction of the real Lincoln. Worth it just for Mary Tyler Moore's performance as the overdramatic Mary Todd Lincoln, who's easily mistaken for a lunatic, and for Sam Waterson's reaction as Lincoln after finding out General Mead's reaction after winning at Gettysburg.

Sam Waterston is probably the best Abe Lincoln ever. He's even got the right accent! Mary Tyler Moore rocks as MTL and Steven Culp was the perfect Johnny Hay.
