|I now want to read about this towering man.|
I loved meeting him and his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln--feel I really did get to meet them through the hard-hitting work of Daniel Day-Lewis and Sally Field. Tommy Lee Jones was so great as Thaddeus Stevens, and the surprise twist at the end, when he goes home to take off his wig and go to sleep, is a cherry on top.
Oh, what a man Lincoln was, and what a visionary Steven Spielberg is, to take this towering giant and turn him into an almost supernatural force. Lincoln was so deeply intelligent, disarming, witty. I am awed by the work of both of these men.
H. and I loved it. And for the first time, we went to the AMC dine-in theatre in West Orange. Big, cushy, reclining chairs, drinks, food. He had beer and a quesadilla, I had seltzer with lime and lobster pizza [only okay].
