Own the moment in time that changed the course of history forever. The most important film of the year, LINCOLN, from acclaimed Oscar®-winning director Steven Spielberg and DreamWorks Pictures will be available to own on high-definition Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD (20 May).
With 12 Oscar® nominations including a Best Actor win for Daniel Day-Lewis, LINCOLN is this year’s must-own motion picture.
Daniel Day-Lewis, as America’s 16th president, leads an all-star cast including Academy Award® winners Tommy Lee Jones and Sally Field. Also starring David Strathairn, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and James Spader, LINCOLN is based on a screenplay written by Pulitzer Prize-winner Tony Kushner. The film is scored by multiple Oscar-winner John Williams.
Inspired by the true-life events confronting Abraham Lincoln and his monumental moral and political challenge to amend the United States Constitution to permanently abolish slavery, LINCOLN is a rich and compelling historical and human drama.
In-depth special features take viewers behind-the-scenes of director Steven Spielberg’s life-long fascination with Lincoln and the 12 years it took to bring the story of one of history’s and mankind’s greatest triumphs to the screen.
