Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Set in the early 19th century, director A.J. Edwards' The Better Angels concerns itself with the boyhood of an American icon: President Abraham Lincoln. The film follows young Abe (Braydon Denney) from his earliest days through harsh disciplines by his father Tom (Jason Clarke), the tragic death of his mother (Brit Marling), and ultimately, the arrival of a stepmother, Sarah Lincoln (Diane Kruger). ~ Rovi
