This is a watchable film. I don't know how historically accurate it is, but I did enjoy learning more about our past. It is interesting that they chose not to show Lincoln except in a photo. I think because most actors have a hard time doing him justice. It was hard seeing Barrymore as such an unlikeable character. I generally like him in his roles, but Stevens was a bit much.
Back to the Courage of Former Days
- Bonnie Barsness
I think we need more of this kind of portrayal of courage to "fight for the right". When we stood strong in WW 2 our country did well. Everyone was trying to do his part in the war effort. I joined in upon my high school graduation in 1945- working in a Portland, Ore. Shipyard. There I met my husband-to-be. He was from Minn. and I from Tenn. originally. We have been married 64 yrs. this fall. I close with a verse from the bible- "Righteousness exalts a nation; but sin is a reproach to any people." Proverbs 14:34
great hx lesson
tuned in to movie in progress but got caught up in this history that I was not familiar with. thouroghly enjoyed and reminded me of the many times in our history when our republic was challenged and yet we survive!
NOW, MORE THAN EVER!
In these uncertain times, it is most appropriate to be reminded of the basic workings of our government, its flaws and its virtues, as well as the charges imposed on it by the Constitution and the American people. We need all the encouragement we can get and the reminder that one man can make a difference is critical. Despite the need for movie theatrics, the issues covered in this movie are true. Please run it again....soon.
