timujin: I fully expect that Day-Lewis puts forth a fantastic performance. However, based on the previews, I was extremely disappointed by the way he decided to characterize Lincoln's voice. He sounds... petulant? Whiny almost... I mean, this is a man who was known for his oratory skills, but based on what I've seen, I can't believe anyone would want to listen to a speech made by him for more than two minutes. Is that consistent with the actual movie or is it better when presented in context?


by all contemporary accounts lincoln had a very strange voice. high pitched and a bit off putting. many of histories great orators had weird quirks like that.

propasaurus: I saw this the other night. Daniel Day-Lewis is absolutely brilliant as Lincoln. It's one of the best performances I've ever seen. The whole movie is visually stunning. Even Sally Field as Mary Lincoln, best thing she's ever done.
Expect multiple Oscars for this movie.
