A film about Abraham Lincoln must be a difficult endeavor. The simple facts of the man’s life story offer so many opportunities for any filmmaker to be weighed down by sentimentality and theatrics. It is for this reason that Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln” is so remarkable, because it effectively evokes the spirit of the man without canonizing him; it highlights the quotidian reality of his life without reminding us at every turn of his immense historical importance.
