“Thumbs Up” on this film. For those of you that are interested in our nations history during the Civil War era, and the Emancipation Proclamation pushed by Abraham Lincoln, go see this film.
Daniel Day-Lewis is no doubt one of our most talented actors of today, plus the support cast in this film makes it without a doubt…Oscar worthy.
