LINCOLN, THE MOVIE

Can’t stop thinking about Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln,” now playing at Cinemark in Hadley. So many questions: Was Daniel Day-Lewis channeling Lincoln? How many Oscars will it win? (Best Picture, Best Actor, for Spielberg and Day-Lewis, Best Supporting for Tommy Lee Jones and Sally Fields, at least.) It gave me chills to see how Abraham Lincoln got Congress to pass the 13th Amendment. Though we know how it turned out, Spielberg makes it a nail-biter.

ANOTHER GOOD BET

A 45-minute program uses puppets, dancers and music for adaptations of “The Very Quiet Cricket” and “The Very Lonely Firefly” at the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst. Friday and Saturday, 2 & 3 p.m. Tickets: 658-1126.
