LINCOLN is a US drama, set in 1865 during the final months of the American Civil War, about Abraham Lincoln's struggle to end slavery in the face of intense political opposition.

Violence

Occasional moderate battle violence includes bayoneting of soldiers, a stabbing to the chest and repeated blows to a soldier with the butt of a rifle. One soldier pushes another's face into muddy water in an attempt to drown him.

Injury detail

Amputated limbs are tipped from a wheelbarrow into a hole in the ground outside a hospital. Battlefield images include sight of multiple dead soldiers, one of whom has a visible stomach wound. A dead man is shown lying on a bloodstained pillow.

Language

There is infrequent use of strong language ('f**k'). Milder terms include 'bitch', 'shit', 'crap' and 'son of a bitch'. There is also occasional use of racist terms including 'nigger' and 'coon'. The film as a whole does not condone discriminatory language or behaviour.
