The 林肯 Cast and Crew Talk About Filming the Historical Biography

在最近的总统大选中,美国仍在与各政党之间关于如何管理该国的争论和分歧进行斗争。 150年前,亚伯拉罕·林肯总统签署了《解放宣言》,赋予奴隶以自由,这也是事实。新历史传记电影‘Lincoln,’该节目现已在部分剧院上映,并在周五扩大票房,显示了这位著名总统在白宫期间所面临的个人和职业斗争。导演史蒂芬·斯皮尔伯格(Steven Spielberg)‘Lincoln,’演员丹尼尔·戴·刘易斯(Daniel Day-Lewis)和电影编剧托尼·库什纳(Tony Kushner)共同饰演了电影的主角萨利·菲尔德(Sally Field)和约瑟夫·戈登·莱维特(Tony Kushner)。

‘Lincoln’ follows the title character, the 16th president of the United States (played by Day-Lewis) as he pushes for the passage of the 13th Amendment abolishing slavery. As the Civil War rages on, the president must also contend with the continued carnage on the battlefield, and the fights he even experiences with members in his own cabinet over the decision to emancipate the slaves. The anti-abolitionist Democrats will be tested against 林肯’的温和派和年轻的共和党热心的反奴隶激进分子。

林肯 must also deal with his wife, Mary Todd 林肯 (portrayed by Field), as she struggles with the deaths of several of their sons, and the estrangement he faces with his college-age son Robert (played by Gordon-Levitt), who returns home from Harvard to join the Union army.

Day-Lewis八年前在爱尔兰首次与Spielberg会面,讨论接受头衔的问题。在库什纳说服导演必须掌管这部传记之后,制片人开始考虑哪个演员最能代表这位尊敬的总统。当斯皮尔伯格开始与获得奥斯卡奖的演员交谈时,他意识到自己不能’制作没有戴维·刘易斯担任片名的电影。

然而,戴维·刘易斯(Day-Lewis)透露,他起初不愿刻画这位受人尊敬的总统,因为他没有’t “想沾染美国最伟大总统的名声’s ever seen.” The actor said that he knew little about 林肯, except for a few things from the Gettysburg Address and his first inaugural speech. But after meeting with Spielberg, and reading Kushner’s script and ‘Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham 林肯,’电影所依据的多丽丝·凯恩斯·古德温(Doris Kearns Goodwin)的书,使总统感到惊讶’幽默和他很容易接近的事实。因此,演员认真考虑扮演这位传奇人物。

While Spielberg was persistent on casting Day-Lewis as 林肯, the actor didn’与他的一些联合主演形成了牢固的纽带,反映了总统’与妻子和孩子的关系有些疏远。菲尔德说她花了很长时间试图成为玛丽,但她没有’尽管需要在两个角色之间建立亲密关系,但经常见到Day-Lewis。赢得艾美奖的女演员说,在拍摄开始之前,她曾给她的女主角发短信七个月,但没有’在他们开始射击之前,与戴维·刘易斯建立真正的亲密关系。

戈登·莱维特说,他的合影明星穿着牛仔裤和T恤来到现场时,终于在拍摄的最后一天真正见到了戴维·刘易斯。演员们玩得很开心‘Lincoln’专注于总统和他的长子’s strained relationship. 林肯 and Robert were estranged, as the president was often away for up to six months a year for his judicial circuit work, political campaigns and political office. 林肯’与罗伯特的超然关系无疑是由他的纪律父亲造成的,他在母亲去世后仅五岁的时候就把他和他的姐姐一个人留在了身边。

Gordon-Levitt补充说,他通过与周围的人,包括库什纳和菲尔德的对话,了解了自己的性格。演员开始意识到罗伯特与父亲有着令人着迷的紧张关系。罗伯特想报名参加联合军,但他的父母却拒绝’t let him. This led him to feel ashamed and cowardly, because everyone else his age was signing up for the army. The actor felt that was hypocritical of 林肯, as he was perpetuating war while also keeping his son from fighting. He also felt that while people deify 林肯, the film shows that he was, indeed, human.

斯皮尔伯格觉得观众会喜欢电影中的演员,因为许多知名演员在几秒钟内就消失了。五分钟后,演员们变成了匿名,因为他们真正成为了自己的角色,“这是雇用有才能的演员的重要部分,”主任说。他补充说,他’对于演员能够说服观众他们真的是他们自己是谁感到自豪’re playing.

斯皮尔伯格(Spielberg)指出了诸如‘The King’s Speech’证明政治电影是’不要失宠。很多人’这位英国国王熟悉伊丽莎白二世女王(Queen Elizabeth II)之前在位的英国国王,但历史传记仍然广受赞誉,并多次获得奥斯卡奖。

斯皮尔伯格也说他没有’t make ‘Lincoln’ because of today’出于政治目的,他很想知道观众如何根据背景来解读这部电影。他补充说 “开国元勋汇集了健全的民主政府负责人,距150年前的进程与今天没有太大不同。”但导演还表示,他有兴趣了解观众如何看待这部电影,因为当时和今天的政治之间存在巨大相似之处。

斯皮尔伯格(Spielberg)也因为他“personal fascination with the myth of 林肯.”这位电影制片人想证明总统所拥有的不仅仅是公众所知道的,尤其是因为’自1930年代以来,这是一部完全根据他的电影。

While Spielberg wanted to also show that what 林肯 did during the Civil War wasn’t illegal, and was actually noble, the director also wanted to show there was still a bit of murkiness to him. He had a depressed psyche, as the war began halfway through his first term, and over 600,000 soldiers were killed in battle. While he also lost several sons during his life, Spielberg was amazed that 林肯 was able to go through life with a moral compass.

While 林肯 was a quiet, personal man, not leaving behind many personal letters or diaries, Spielberg’历史剧展现了第16任总统在其领导下与之抗衡的真实人性。尽管他未能与子女保持持久联系,尤其是罗伯特或玛丽,但他仍致力于采取一切必要措施来保护自己的国家和家人。‘Lincoln’不仅展示了美国领导人的奉献精神,而且还展示了演员们的献身表现。
