Watch an Over 40-Minute LINCOLN Q&A with Steven Spielberg and Daniel Day-Lewis

     October 11, 2012


2012 is shaping up to be one hell of a year for film. We’ve already seen a number of inventive, original pics from some talented filmmakers, but there’s still so much promising material ahead of us.  One of the more anticipated titles of the fall season is director Steven Spielberg’s long-in-the-works drama Lincoln.  The pic made its world premiere recently at the NYFF to a relatively positive response, and yesterday Spielberg and star Daniel Day-Lewis took part in a live Q&A for the film.

If you missed the livestream of the extended discussion, you’re in luck: the full 42-minute Q&A has now gone online for all to see.  I haven’t watched the full conversation yet, but I saw a few highlights yesterday in which Spielberg talked about this being the most performance-driven film he’s ever made.  Indeed, early reactions noted the pic’s similarity to The West Wing in that it features a lot of conversing and political maneuvering behind closed doors.  That’s right up my alley, so consider me one of those incredibly excited for the politics-geared drama.  Hit the jump to watch the full Q&A.  Lincoln opens wide on November 16th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Lincoln:

Steven Spielberg directs two-time Academy Award® winner Daniel Day-Lewis in “Lincoln,” a revealing drama that focuses on the 16th President’s tumultuous final months in office. In a nation divided by war and the strong winds of change, 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 generations to come.
