Spot on about the script. [In reply to] Can't Post

It felt as if the film just dropped the audience into a particular point of time with no historical context (Mary Todd Lincoln's illness and her spendthrift habits, Lincoln's former support of slavery) and that was a big barrier to enjoyment for me.

'I do not know what is happening. The reason of my waking mind tells me that great evil has befallen and we stand at the end of days. But my heart says nay; and all my limbs are light, and a hope and joy are come to me that no reason can deny. Eowyn, Eowyn, White Lady of Rohan, in this hour I do not believe that any darkness will endure!' And he stooped and kissed her brow.
