Product description

"Splendid. . . . This is among the finest films ever made about American politics."--"The New York Times""A brilliant, brawling epic. . . . Screenwriter Tony Kushner blows the dust off history by investing it with flesh, blood, and churning purpose. . . . A great American movie."?"Rolling Stone"A decade-long collaboration between three-time Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg and Pulitzer Prize winner Tony Kushner, the Academy Award-nominated screenplay of "Lincoln" is a revealing drama that focuses on the sixteenth president's tumultuous final months in office. Having just won re-election in a country divided, Abraham Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country, and abolish slavery. With the moral courage and fierce determination to succeed, his choices during this critical moment will change the fate of America and generations to come. Containing eight pages of color photos from the film and based in part on Doris Kearns Goodwin's critically acclaimed "Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln," " Lincoln" is now a major motion picture by DreamWorks starring three-time Academy Award winner Daniel Day-Lewis.Tony Kushner's plays include "Angels in America, Parts One and Two";" A Bright Room Called Day"; "Slavs!"; "Homebody/Kabul"; "Caroline, or Change," a musical with composer Jeanine Tesori; and "The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide to Capitalism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures." He wrote the screenplays for Mike Nichols's film of "Angels in America" and for Steven Spielberg's "Munich." Kushner is the recipient of a Pultizer Prize, two Tony Awards, three Obie Awards, two Evening Standard Awards, an Olivier Award, an Emmy Award, and two Oscar nominations, among other honors. In 2008 he was the first recipient of the Steinberg Distinguished Playwright Award.
