Eerily accurate. Daniel Day-Lewis was spotted in a Virginia restaurant while filming Steven Spielberg’s forthcoming Lincoln, based on Doris Kearns Goodwin’s Team of Rivals:
I’ve seen a lot of awful movie and TV versions of Lincoln (Sam Waterston as Mini-Lincoln and Hal Holbrooke as Squished Lincoln) and, even though he’s wearing modern clothing, this is easily the most accurate Lincoln so far. And not surprising given Day-Lewis’ attention to detail. I’m also looking forward to the voice, which historians believe was high pitched.
