Lincoln, the Movie

Standard

Very difficult dialogues in an old-fashioned English with a very strong accent, “Lincoln” is not an easy movie but worth watching with astonishing Day-Lewis (Lincoln) and Lee-Jones (Stevens) performances. What is even more impressive is to realize that even after 150 years post the abolition of slavery, we are now discussing the fair opportunity in the exactly way they were discussing if black and whites were equal or not at that time. It is revolting to realize that we have to fight for the fair opportunity, and 150 years from now the fair opportunity is going to be something out of discussion. Moreover, it is always shocking to me that we still live in a world where lots of people think that white is superior and, mostly, inequality is nature.
