‘Lincoln’ TV Spot Debuts During Presidential Debates
To tie into tonight's Presidential debate, Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln' has released a long form TV spot, perhaps to remind us of the last President everyone can agree was pretty amazing (well, at least most everyone).
Though it it plays up its connection to modern politics and more recent struggles quite a bit, this feels more interesting than the trailer. It gives a better sense of what the movie is about, and a better look at star Daniel Day-Lewis (and co-stars like Sally Field, David Strathairn, and Jackie Earle Haley).
Here's the film's synopsis:
Steven Spielberg directs two-time Academy Award® winner Daniel Day-Lewis in “Lincoln,” 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.
During President Lincoln’s tumultuous final months in office, he pursues a course of action to end the Civil War, unite the country and abolish slavery.
