5. Lincoln (2012)

Spielberg’s most recent film depicts perhaps the greatest most celebrated figure in American history.  Lincoln is a sweeping epic covering Honest Abe’s internal conflict to end American slavery despite a divided House of Representatives debating freedom and equality. With Lincoln, Spielberg showed that he can take a great cast (Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones), a phenomenal script and another true story and tell it with the same respect and grace as he displayed in his World War II-set films.
