Courtesy of the good folks at Disney and Touchstone Home Entertainment, CultureMob is offering a special giveaway for Lincoln on Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack.Â Rather than summarize the plot of this Academy Award-winning drama myself, I’ll leave that job to Touchstone’s official synopsis.
Steven Spielberg directs three-time Academy Award winner Daniel Day-Lewis in Lincoln, a revealing drama that focuses on the 16th President’s tumultuous final months in office. Â In a nation divided by war and the strong winds of change, Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country and abolish slavery. Â With the moral courage and fierce determination to succeed, his choices during this critical moment will change the fate of generations to come.
I reviewed the film not long ago; it’s impeccably crafted, and one of the best films of director Steven Spielberg’s storied career. Â As I wrote on March 26th:
The reasonÂ Lincoln plays like a new classic is due to [Spielberg’s] mastery of screen language.Â A lesser film might drown in staginess, regardless of how enthralling are [Tony] Kushner’s script and the cast, but Spielberg gives the proceedings a pace.Â He lets scenes run in long takes, with quietly dynamic camera takes stitching them together.Â I could watch Spielberg frame actors in doorways and flickering lights all day; visually, he’s conversing with the ghosts of John Ford and Orson Welles.
And I have two copies of the two-disc Blu-ray combo pack to give away. Â It’s very simple. Â To qualify for the disc, email me at [email protected], put “Lincoln Blu-ray/DVD Giveaway” in the email subject line, provide your first and last name, and correctly answer the following question.
- Daniel Day-Lewis won his first Academy Award for which of the following features?
- a)Â In the Name of the Father b)Â My Left Foot c)Â Lincoln d) There Will Be Blood
I’m going to stop taking entries at 8 PM EST next week on Monday, April 15th, so get your answers in before then. Â Only contestantsÂ within the United States are eligible, and entering the same name under multiple email addresses will get you disqualified. Â P.O. box addresses willÂ notÂ be accepted. Â If you win the giveaway and send me a P.O. box,Â you will be disqualified.
Good day, and good luck.
