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.

I'm so glad you pre-faced this saying it was a spoiler. I didn't want to read that maybe he was killed or something.

I saw it a couple of weeks ago at a sneak preview. It was one of the best movies I have seen this year. Daniel Day Lewis was incredible in that movie!

I posted a link a couple of weeks ago that I found interesting. I'll post it again since it is Lincoln related...

This is from a 1956 game show - "I've Got a Secret". In the show, panelists have to figure out a contestant's secret. If the panel is stumped, the contestant wins. Samuel Seymour (age 96) is the contestant. His secret - he was at the Ford's Theater and witnessed the assassination of Lincoln. At the time, he was the last living eyewitness from the theater.

It's longer. 2.5 hours. Sure doesn't feel like it though.

PP, he'll love it!

I think there are some scenes that might be hard for a younger child to watch.

Slight Spoilers:






There is a wheel barrow full of amputated limbs with dripping blood.
There are scenes of Lincoln riding a horse through the battle scene with hundreds of dead bodies.

Actually, the movie is loosely based on the book by Doris Kearns Goodwin called "Team of Rivals."

Thumbs up

I thought this was a great movie. Kudo's to Spielberg for how he handled the assassination.

Well, it is PG-13.

Although The King's Speech was R, only because of the number of times he said the F-word.

I didn't say don't take children but you have to know your children and your tolerance level. A friend of mine will not allow her children's to see Pinocho because they use the word jacka........

Language is one thing, blood and death are something else.

My teenage son wants to see it. I was surprised since he's usually not into history.

Turns out his new History teacher told the kids that if they go back to school after Thanksgiving break with a ticket stub from this movie he'll give them 10 points on their grade.
My son could definitely use the points so that's why he wants to see it. LOL

Looks like you are vastly outnumbered, as Killing Lincoln got to #2 on the New York Times Bestseller list. And his Killing Kennedy: The End Of Camelot went to #1 instantly when it was released.
