That is Daniel Day Lewis portraying President Abraham Lincoln…in Lincoln, a film directed by Steven Spielberg and produced by DreamWorks, Twentieth Century Fox, and Participant Media.
The film focuses on the last four months of Lincoln’s life and his political strategy nearing the end of the Civil War to ensure that slavery would be outlawed forever. “Our movie is really about a working leader who must make tough decisions and get things done in the face of overwhelming opposition,” Spielberg said.
Lincoln will open in limited release on November 9, expanding on November 16.
