What do you think about it for a 10 year old? My daughter loves history, it's her favorite subject and Lincoln is her favorite president. She has been asking me to take her to see it.

We brought our 11 & 13 year old to it. Quite a bit of bad language (my DD said it was the first time she heard someone say **** in a movie). It was a great movie, I don't think the language stood out too much to the kids because it was such a great story. I might not have brought them had I known they would say that word so much.

Thank you. I'm pretty sure that I'm going to take her to see it. I'll have a discussion with her about the language before we go.

We went to see it Friday night. It was really good. There will be plenty of Oscar nominations I am sure.

A lot of the movie was filmed here in Richmond so it was really cool to see a lot of those parts too.

DH and I plan to see it this week also. I understand what you mean about not putting money into Bill O'Reilly's pocket, which is why I'm going to check the book out of the library.

I think the first scene while not in any way gruesome is the only real battle scene in the movie. what made it so engrossing is that it's "hand to hand" battle, so you do see some very intense fighting but very very little blood. definitely no guts popping out that type of thing.

I actually thought the language wasn't too bad. the places where there were curses were mainly very emotional scenes, of course there are a instances of ******.

some pictures of slave brutality but if she's had any type of american history she may have seen them before.

for example.

you see one of the characters looking at this picture. scroll down the linked page.

http://www.nps.gov/liho/historyculture/slavery.htm

which is a very well used picture.

She was GREAT in this movie! I've always been a fan of SF, but she really brought it this time.

I really really liked this movie. I love a good, deep, cerebral film. No CGI, no fancy stunts. Don't take your eye and ears off the screen, or you'll miss something important. Daniel Day-Lewis is outstanding, as is Tommy Lee Jones. Excellent, excellent film

I hate to say it, but your kids probably hear "that word" every day at school. The relatively small amount of cursing that goes on in this movie was authentic, IMO. It was war-time, after all. I imagine that there was a LOT more of it in real life.

OK, so I have only seen the trailers for this movie. I really thought I would love to see it but (and I guess I'm just weird or something) my mental image of Lincoln has always been someone with a deep, James-Earl-Jones voice. This actor has such a high-pitched girly voice that I am afraid it would ruin it for me!

I heard (and I am by no stretch of the imagination an expert) that, this version is more authentic.

Historians say that Lincoln had a high pitched voice, so did General Patton.

According to history, Lincoln did have a high-pitched voice.
