I remember fondly, Henry Fonda and Raymond Massey as Lincolns in “Young Mr.Lincoln” and “Abe Lincoln in Illinois” They gave remarkable performances. But, here and now in this extraordinary Steven Spielberg/Tony Kushner version, the illusion is complete. I was watching the president and not for a moment thought of the actor. That in itself is close to unique. I left the theater with the feeling I’ve just had an out of body experience. Everything around the central performance – and I call it a performance because I don’t know what else to call it – falls into place in a miraculous way. The photography, the production design, the wardrobe made it possible to actually smell the period. Congratulations and thank you.
