Diane Kruger on her forthcoming Lincoln film

Diane Kruger plays Lincoln’s stepmother, Sarah Bush Johnston Lincoln, in the forthcoming movie The Green Blade Rises. Here’s how she described the film in a recent interview:

There is a historical story to it. It’s very little dialogue but it’s very much, maybe also because it’s black and white, there’s very much this sense of the harsh times back then and how this young boy was so different in his family and how his father didn’t really quite know how to handle a boy that wanted to learn. They were farmers. He did not believe in education. He didn’t read himself or write himself, so he was initially very upset with his son for not being a tough farmboy. He was so different. What’s beautiful about that movie is it’s Abraham Lincoln’s story, but it could be any boy’s story who gets pushed in the right direction.
