So I posted what was a “taste” of the film a couple of days ago. Now we have the official trailer, and I have to admit, the film looks luscious.
My only quibble: Daniel Day-Lewis certainly looks the part. But I always imagined the Great Emancipator having a deeper, more resonant voice. Perhaps because he was so tall. And perhaps because when he spoke, people listened. And remembered what he said.
I only hope it’s not four hours of people looking “momentous” and sounding portentous, with men in Napoleonic lines collapsing in slow motion.
