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.  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.  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.  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.  As I wrote on March 26th:

The reason Lincoln plays like a new classic is due to [Spielberg’s] mastery of screen language.  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.  He lets scenes run in long takes, with quietly dynamic camera takes stitching them together.  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.  It’s very simple.  To qualify for the disc, email me at, 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)  In the Name of the Father b) My Left Foot c) 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.  Only contestants within the United States are eligible, and entering the same name under multiple email addresses will get you disqualified.  P.O. box addresses will not be accepted.  If you win the giveaway and send me a P.O. box, you will be disqualified.

Good day, and good luck.

Lincoln is now available on Blu-ray 3D combo pack, DVD, and digital download.  Click HERE for Amazon’s listing.
