Our jury was completely floored by Lincoln. They loved how real it felt and how human the movie portrayed Abraham Lincoln, especially the way he told stories to his colleagues. The technical achievements to the accuracy to the time “brought the era to life.” One jury member said Lincoln was a “powerful story of courage and determination.” This is easily one of the most beloved movies the Truly Moving Pictures Award jury has seen in 2012.
