With the nation embroiled in still another year with the high death count of Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln (Daniel Day-Lewis) brings the full measure of his passion, humanity and political skill to what would become his defining legacy: to end the war and permanently abolish slavery through the 13th Amendment. Having great courage, acumen and moral fortitude, Lincoln pushes forward to compel the nation, and those in government who oppose him, to aim toward a greater good for all mankind.
After Iris (Sally Field) divorces her wealthy husband, she becomes a housekeeper for Paula (Judy Davis) and Leo (Jerry Wasserman), a rich Maine couple. Paula is demanding and almost impossible to please, but when her marriage falls apart, she does not know how to handle the painful separation. Without anyone to turn to, the two women form an unlikely friendship, help each other cope with the hardships of divorce, and learn how to move forward with their lives.
