My hubby and I saw the movie Lincoln last evening. I thought is was a great movie. Everyone was cast perfectly, except for the role of Mary Todd Lincoln. Sally Field's interpretation of Mrs. Lincoln's mental issues reminded me too much of her role in Sybil (a story about a woman with multiple personality disorder). She doesn't have much range and she tends to be too dramatic.... but her scenes were few, thankfully.
It was fun to watch the scenes in which the House debated the ratification of the 13th Amendment. However, I found it surprising how (if the movie is accurate) the members debated so mean spiritedly and with such funny, imaginative name calling.
Has anyone else seen the movie yet? What are your thoughts on the movie?
