We Still Care About Our History With Lincoln

Dreamworks – Facebook

Thanksgiving weekend, my mother and I decided to go to the movies. I’d heard really good things about Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln”, so that’s what we went go to see.

Of course, being Thanksgiving weekend, the theater was crowded, but I assumed that the bulk of the crowd was there to see the new “Twilight” movie, or the new James Bond

There was even a line waiting to get into the actual theater. I joked with the young man selling tickets and said, “gosh, I hope they’re not all going to see ‘Lincoln'”, of course thinking that a dramatic, historical movie wouldn’t be drawing much of a crowd. 

Imagine my surprise when they opened the rope and everyone started filing into the same theater as me. I wasn’t the only one surprised, either. The young couple behind me made a comment about the eclectic group of people going to see the 19th century history lesson. I turned to them and said, “hey, it gives ya some hope in humanity, doesn’t it?”. 

And it does. It’s nice to see that people aren’t just going to the movies to be mindlessly entertained for 2+ hours, but many are going to actually learn something about our shared history. 

And it wasn’t just that weekend either, “Lincoln” had another good couple of days, staying in the top 4 this past weekend

Have you seen “Lincoln” yet? If so, did you enjoy it? If not, do you plan to? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section!
