    LINCOLN is in theaters November 9th, 2012 (Limited) and Nationwide November 16th, 2012.

    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.

    He has a stupid voice. I never pictured him sounding like that.

    Love me some historical movies.

    Actually, that's exactly how people have described his voice. High pitched for a man of his size/height and never fit the character or leadership he commanded.

    One always expected a much deeper voice of strength but his voice wasn't his greatest gift.

    BTW, the movie looks like another Spielberg historical borefest.

    He'll make the entire war seem like it was a fight for bleak freedoms :coffee:

    The people who actually heard him speak back then didn't, either.

    Lincoln's high voice stemmed from his repressed homosexuality.

    That may be the most melodramatic trailer of all time.
