D.C. in the Movies Virtual Experiences
Steven Spielberg directs Daniel Day-Lewis as America’s 16th President, focusing on his final months in office. Lincoln pursues a courageous course of action designed to end the Civil War, unite the country, and abolish slavery. Although set almost entirely in Washington, D.C., Spielberg ultimately shot his 2012 film in another city to capture the look and feel of the 1860s nation’s capital. Film critic Mike Canning explains how he did it and why.
