Saw a headline on FB today that the movie would be released in time for Oscar consideration. AICN story. Who will go see the movie? Will it be as well received as Amistad? I like Daniel Day-Lewis, but he might not be enough to draw me to the theater. It will undoubtedly reinforce the nationalist myth, but at this late stage of the game, how many in 20 years will care about Lincoln or the real legacy of those who founded this country? I do wonder how much revisonism has taken place in the script to make Lincoln look better than he really was.
