‘Lincoln’ Clips: Preview Daniel Day-Lewis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and More
If you’re still in the political mood after last night, we have a few presidential treats for you in the form of three clips from Steven Speilberg’s ‘Lincoln.’ Steven Spielberg’s latest is opening in limited release this week, but you can preview Daniel Day-Lewis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones‘ acting chops right now!
The first clip shows us Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Robert Todd Lincoln arguing with his father about entering the army. Clip two features a moving monologue by Daniel Day-Lewis as he discusses equality (and mathematical reasoning); and the final clip is a cordial but touchy confrontation between Sally Field’s Mary Todd Lincoln and Tommy Lee Jones’ Thaddeus Stevens.
‘Lincoln’ is a revealing drama that focuses on the 16th President’s tumultuous final months in office. In a nation divided by war and the strong winds of change, Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country and abolish slavery. With the moral courage and fierce determination to succeed, his choices during this critical moment will change the fate of generations to come.
‘Lincoln’ opens in limited release on November 9 and wide release on November 16. Check out all three clips below and let us know if you’ll go see it in theaters.
