Lincoln

Premiering March 26 on Rogers On Demand (Channel 100) and online at RogersAnyplaceTV.com.

If there’s one reason to watch this film, it’s for Daniel Day-Lewis’s outstanding portrayal of Lincoln as a folksy, cagey, driven, morally righteous and haunted leader, father and husband.

A film about Abraham Lincoln, simply called Lincoln, and directed by Steven Spielberg, implies something sweeping and epic – a defining portrait of America’s most revered president. But we are shown only a brief glimpse of a Civil War battlefield; Lincoln does not deliver the Gettysburg Address; his assassination takes place off screen; and not a single vampire is slain.

Instead, the story focuses on a single month in the 16th president’s life as he struggles to abolish slavery. The country is divided by war, as is Lincoln’s own family. His son (played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt) wants to join the Union Army, which Lincoln and his wife (Sally Field) oppose. The result is an intimate and powerful film.

You’re hilarious, I’m literally rotflmfao!
Damned to the depths whatever madman thought of the Great Emancipator slaying vampires and not feckless rednecks.
