A noteworthy achievement
4 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

An exceptional documentary on the life of Abraham Lincoln, told through narration, letters, speeches, and diaries.

I don't know if I quite agreed with the choice of Jason Robards as Lincoln, but this is just a matter of taste (although I have read descriptions of how Lincoln actually sounded).

You should, however, ignore this minor quibble. If you have any interest at all in one of history's most fascinating people, or even if you are already an expert on Lincoln, you should see this film.
