Lincoln

Lincoln(2012)

Historical drama about Lincoln's pragmatic attempts to get the 13th Amendment (abolishing slavery) passed in the House of Representatives, using bribery, threats and misdirection. Somewhat stiff and formal, as might be expected given the material, but great performances and the appearance of historical realism make it surprisingly entertaining, falling just short of the must-see classic status it aspires to.
