Striking while its Academy Award for Best Actor Daniel Day-Lewis is still hot, director Steven Spielberg’s epic, critically acclaimed account of our 16th president’s monumental political and moral struggle to unite a nation by abolishing slavery makes a quick turnaround for home-entertainment viewing. Bonus features on the most loaded of the three editions include a discussion with Spielberg and his team of the 12 years it took to bring the Doris Kearns Goodwin novel on which the movie was partly based to the screen; an in-depth look at its actors’ immersion into their roles; and other behind-the-scenes and on-location documentaries about the making of the film.
