My wife has seen the film, so far I haven't. She was impressed, and said that Daniel Day-Lewis is magnificent. The reviews I've read have been mixed, some saying it's a remarkable film, others not so impressed.
I tend to ignore reviews because in the past I have loved films which were panned by the critics, and hated some that got rave reviews. As always, it's best to make up your own mind.
Thanks for all the information folks, but so far none has been any good to me. My fault because I now find that although the film is being shown it is at what I now call "an ungodly hour" in other words it is on too late in the evening for me. None of the pictures I want to see are showing as an afternoon matinee. It is a fact that as one gets older one tends to fall asleep after about 20,00 hrs. It happens to me these days so I tend to go to places in the daytime when I am guaranteed to remain awake. (I hope).
Django Unchained, Lincoln, Zero Dark Thirty and The Impossible are all on late evenings. There are films showing at a reasonable hour but not ones that interest me... Les Mis is on in the afternoons but as I have already seen it I do not wish to see it again. I think I will phone my local cinema to complain. "Victor Meldrew here, When are you twerps going to do something about....etc...etc...?"
