This movie is definitely worth seeing. It's a bit of history and quite educational. That being said, the first part of the movie is pretty slow and boring. But once you get past the first half, the second half of the movie gets interesting. The movie is all about the 13th amendment and how Lincoln made it happen.
It was also intriguing to see a
glimpse into Lincoln's relationship with his wife Mary. Mary struggled
with the devastating loss of one of her sons Willie. Lincoln even
thought about sending Mary to a mental institution because of her issues
dealing with the death of Willie. Sally Fields did an outstanding job
playing Mary and had a wonderful moment keeping one of the Republicans
Thaddeus Stevens in line.
Tommy Lee Jones also did an excellent job in
the role of Thaddeus Stevens. Even though we all know what happened,
it's fascinating to see how the 13th amendment was passed by the House
of Representatives and how Lincoln helped shape American history.
