Spielberg's Lincoln

RE: Spielberg's Lincoln
Actually, I think Spielberg made the best choice for the broadest possible audience. Most people who know little else about Lincoln know him as the Great Emancipator, so it's something they can grab on to. A movie about, say, Lincoln as commander in chief would have been in the theaters for about a week before it went to DVD. It's probably the most dramatic story arc of Lincoln's presidency. A straight biopic would have had less dramatic pull, in my opinion.

Abraham Lincoln in the only man, dead or alive, with whom I could have spent five years without one hour of boredom.
