Let’s just say it: The experience of watching Daniel Day-Lewis in this role is nothing less than thrilling. This is Lincoln. No need for a time machine, there he is. There are entire stretches in LINCOLN, especially in the Cabinet scenes, as you hear the complexity of his legal and strategic thinking, that you might very well forget you’re seeing acting—even forget you’re in a movie theater—and instead believe that you’re sitting in a room with the 16th president. To be on the receiving end of that is more than entertainment. It feels like a gift.
Daniel Day-Lewis is inarguably its star, delivering an unimpeachable performance as the United States’ 16th president in a shrewd, stately drama focused on a narrow yet defining chapter of Lincoln’s life: abolishing slavery via the passage of a Constitutional amendment.
