The Better Angels
At an isolated log cabin in the harsh wilderness of Indiana circa 1817, the rhythms of love, tragedy, and the daily hardships of life on the developing frontier shaped one of our nation's greatest heroes: Abraham Lincoln. Using black and white cinematography to conjure an America where the land was raw, the film sheds new light on the formative years of the future president and the two women who molded him into one of the most revered men in American history. Based on interviews with Lincoln's family members.
