    I loved the movie and the 2.5 hours went by so fast. I too found it interesting that the Democrats didn't want to abolish slavery. I want to see the movie again so I can check out the clothing, furniture, etc. more closely. I was so engrossed in the dialogue that I didn't study the surroundings too closely.

    having just toured Gettysbury, PA earlier in April, I thoroughy enjoyed the movie... I agree with others, the 2 1/2 hours passed quickly as Steven Spielberg kept you interested the entire length of the movie.

    My husband and I saw it and found it to be very interesting. I was impressed because there was no sex and no foul language - seems that they throw that into a movie even if it has nothing to do with the story line.

    I thought it was nice to see the explanation ...
    Thanks, this is terrific!

    I just realized, in the movie there were not any scenes where they were eating, were there? I just made the Martha Washington cake (they give you the recipe at the Mt Vernon candlelight tour) which is what made me think of that. It would have been interesting looking at the table settings.

    Plan on seeing it this weekend. Thought I'd take my GD (15 yrs old). Here it is a long movie but well worth it.
    Saw Circus de Solie movie last weekend. Not much of a story line but great entertainment.

    I agree it was a well spent 2.5 hours. I do not purchase movies often when they come out on DVD but this will be one I watch again and again. Even my 18 year old daughter and 15 year old son enjoyed it. It was very interesting to listen to the two of them discuss the political maneuvering that was a running theme throughout. Highly recommended film!

    For those of you who have seen this movie multiple times, can you describe the quilt shown on Thaddeus Stevens bed?
