Z Studio, 1 pm
Cast: Daniel Day-Lewis,
This biographical film focusses on the life and time in office of President Abraham Lincoln. It zeroes in on the time when Civil War was ending in 1865 and there was a proposition to abolish slavery in America. It also deals with the President’s personal life. Director Steven Spielberg wanted details to be precise, so he borrowed Lincoln’s actual pocket watch from the Kentucky Historical Society. It is the watch the President carried on the day of his assassination.

Cast: DB Sweeny, Charlie Sheen,
Benjy Taylor (D B Sweeny) is a rookie cop who goes undercover to nab a gang of car thieves supposedly led by playboy Ted Varrick (Charlie Sheen). But Taylor gets in too deep and starts to like the life he has with the gang and the thrill of being a car thief. He soon becomes Varrick’s right-hand man and falls in love with his sister, Ann (Lara Harris). But his cover is threatened. Although he is uncredited in the film, this was Brad Pitt’s debut—in a blink-and-miss role of a waiter.
